I am sorry, maybe my English was not clear.
I was not accusing at all.
I would like to learn Kotlin, I am not questioning about it.

I was just trying to say that maybe Kotlin is still a new language and
contributors and reviewers will need to learn it together with Calcite.

About Quidem...to me it is an useful mechanism to write tests in Calcite
domain, it is far different from a complete programming language.

I appreciate very much that this community wants to be modern
