Not really so revolutionary... Svelte appears to be heavily inspired by the excellent RiotJS

Hey @jonrandy ,
thanks for pointing me tio RiotJS. I have to admit I didn't know it. Nevertheless, the point is not that Svelte is somehow revuliotionary. Also RiotJS was not the first thing shifting work toward the build instead of runtime.

These compilers are rather unknown compared to the bigger frameworks like React, Vue and Angular. Therefore I still think Svelte in "different".
