Maybe I'm biased, but I think the future is all about functional
programming. C has its benefits by being very very low-level, but if
you're going to include a whole bunch of new features, like GC and
CSP, imo you may as well just go the whole hog and mix in some
beautiful features like functional purity and type inference. I would
think a functional language designed around efficiency could gain a
lot from supercompilation, and would be easier to write correct
programs in, too.

(Like I say, I may be biased: my undergrad dissertation is on
highly-optimised second-order reduction systems.)
