I don't agree that we're *adding* magic. We are however replacing the
current set of magic:

 + reflection - yes we use that right now...
 + new pseudo language - replaces the old pseudo-language
 + new metadata format - replaces the old metadata format which
   the programmers shouldn't know or care about anyway.
 + new developer tool - replaces the two existing tools (one for
   fortress one for merlin).

Will attempt to dissolve your reasoning in another mail, though!
