Isn't Walter already sufficiently harried?  :-)  (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Nope.  There's a head-shot of him at the bottom of this page:

So Walter, put down the razor already!

Funny, he doesn't look anything like I expected. I was imagining more of a 
Woz or lumberjack look all along.

But back to the original post, it looks like I should start writing a 
language ;)

"harried" can be translated as busy or harassed (as in by more projects than 
you have time for).

In that regards, yes Walter is very harried

Since a programming language needs a run-time to be used and Tango seems
very successful in the D community, I wonder - does Sean, Kris or Lars
have beards?
In the same line of thought, does Andrei have a beard?

_Note_: this is not said to start yet another flame war, but rather to
looking at this from a less serious perspective, so *please* don't take
this to mean something more then it meant to be.

Kris does, at least as of the DCon last year.  A minor one at least.

LOL.  That is a real groaner! :)

On another note, I think that this picture demonstrates that all of my 
proposals are good ideas and should be included in the language:

Thanks, I'm glad someone got the pun.  Apparently at least one responder 
did not.
