I think this is the wrong question to ask. You can't "make everybody
happy". Rather than attempt that, you should think very hard about what
target (users, architectures, use-cases) are most important to you, and
then design and optimize for those.
(I'm particularly thinking of multi-core and similar platforms, where
implicitly parallelizable code is key to acceptance.)

Definitely not.
