> There is a strong chance that Elixir will explore so much in terms of
language conveniences that it will blow up the way C++, Ruby, and Perl have.

Elixir has not added new syntax since v1.0, launched in Sep/2014 (almost 4
years ago, while the language is 6.5 years old).

Granted, 4 years is not a long time in terms of programming languages,
especially when compared to Erlang/C++/Ruby, but it shows the trend is not
pointing to the direction you have hinted.
