Not exactly what I would call C-like in that it does a whole lot more. It is C-like in the way many popular languages are, that the syntax resembles C but that superficial similarity isn't really worth noting. It may be good marketing to get people to look at a new language though.
I think Go took the right approach with calling those bugs to be avoided rather than features to be implemented.
Don't be clever. Be understandable to most readers.
