Thoughts on the water language

Have you looked at the water language,which supports both a functional and object-oriented programming style? Wiley just published a 400+ page book on it (that I wrote). The creators of the language (Fry and Plusch) have an MIT background and have worked on Lisp, Dylan and ML systems.
Yes, I have looked at water. There are numerous languages that take this approach. The first I remember was back in the SGML days that had to do with IETMs (Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals). I personally do not like the approach, but then again I'm spoiled (a Python programmer). :-)
