stop saying "systems language" when what you really mean is "c++-like"

@iitalics serious take: python with a proper pointer manip library and the ability to compile the runtime in with the script is a systems language

it'll be super inefficient without a "struct" library, but it could in fact be used for systems level programming

an interpreter, when compiled into the same binary as the script, is just a fancy runtime

@iitalics i don't think this is a *useful* take, just that yeah, "systems language" is very overloaded :P
