It's not C. It's a new language. The benefit is that you can get a
basic understanding of what the compiler does fast. It's next to
impossible to hide how it compiles and what type of code it generates.
So it could be used for security reasons, with less need for security

And it generates fast code without optimizing. And it compiles
extremely fast. And you can easily change it to fit an other
instruction set, CPU or VM.

And the language syntax is readable. It's not a esoteric language.
