i'll have to defend my profession here: which working programming
language theorist proposes java as a "systems-programming language"?
most of them are busy researching concurrency or pointer arithmetic
these days.

but i guess it depends what you mean by that "systems-programming
language". rather than attempting a definition (it's late here), i'll
point to C/C++ or Cyclone as examples.
