yeah, because the "special-case syntactical work-arounds" are care-
fully designed to be *usable* for a well-defined group of *practical*
problems. it's about HCI, not CS.
please get over this "all I have is a hammer that my CS teacher told
me to use" mode of thinking; we're designing for humans, not wannabe
language designers who believe in "the one true mechanism". there are
plenty of other reli^h^h^h^hlanguages for that kind of thinking.
