Thank you for your answers!

I like Haskell and OCaml, but I don't have experience with them much. I
like Scheme and Common Lisp more :)

The point-free style is beautiful, but it is often just
self-satisfaction, so I think after hearing your opinion that better use
them less in shared code.
However, those features that make it possible are very good, and I will
continue to use them in the programs I write for personal use :)
