%X occam [1] offers features and attributes that make it unique
   among programming languages, particularly in the ease and
   security with which one may program concurrency. After a
   brief summary of occam\[rs]s strengths, possible additional
   features are discussed, including recursion, source code
   modularity, exception response, and the automatic avoidance
   of deadlock. Consideration is then given to the inclusion of
   passive (\[rs]data\[rs]) objects and the possibility of
   their movement between processes. Transfer primitives are
   proposed, alongside assignment and communication. Discussion
   is presented with regard to the potential for a new
   programming language, building on occam, while preserving
   its security and simplicity.
