Q.  Have you found any show-stopper issues with Scala?

A.   Yes, at least as of scala-2.10.3-8.fc20 it...

- It does *not* give a warning when Scala code uses a member that was @Deprecated in a Java class

- It does *not* give an error when Scala code doesn't catch or pass on an Exception.

- I read that Scala library member Source.fromFile() can throw an exception but Scala doesn't make you do something with it.

- In general Scala doesn't check Exceptions.  That just seems unprofessional to me.

- Slow compiles

I like Scala.  But these things are crucial for me.
