I'll seed the discussion with two from John at the AGM, and one from  
prior list debating [1]:

   * REST vs. SOAP (not SOA, like what I thought I heard him say)
   * Functional languages vs. functional languages with limited/no  
side effects (real world vs. academic)
   * Declarative vs. imperative languages with regards to their  
ability to be Turing-complete


Cheers,
