There is a strict sense in which multiple dispatch is superset/generalization of OOP (essentially “single dispatch”). Eg: Watch Stefan Karponski’s 2019 JuliaCon talk.
Once you’re dispatching on multiple variables, and not just a single one, then I don’t see inheritance having such clean and well-defined semantics.

Are you happy with the kind of community participation that has developed around Julia, including particularly the pipeline of users maturing into contributors? (to libraries, and also the core language)
Have you given any deliberate thought to this aspect (post 1.0, if it’s relevant), and do you have any thoughts towards whether this ought to be a focal goal, and if so, how to go about it?
