It doesn't seem to even mention it. I also belive this is a much better
syntax, which doesn't introduce a new symbol, and reads more naturally.
I'd really like to see the current implemented syntax replaced by this
one, but I'm not sure what's the correct way to proceed from here.

How can I help defining something superior? You said you don't want
