That in turn will force you to think about many of the details that you're currently brushing away as irrelevant -- and you'll find that they are actually highly relevant.
I'm not brushing them away as irrelevant, I'm setting them aside until it's decided that it's even worth pursuing. I don't know about you, but I don't bother arguing with my wife about the color of a new cars until we're certain we need to buy one.
I'm sorry, but the points people are bringing up are not bikeshedding. They are very real points that are more analogous to whether the car has wheels or flies on pixie dust. I'm sorry, but you can't cast aside the subtleties of turning statements into expressions as bikeshedding arguments. Many of the people who gave you very genuine feedback pointed out particularly difficult to rectify problems (like how exactly do you notate a suite if you eliminate the required indent tokens?) and your response to them is that they are missing the point.. You want to change the language, the syntax of that change is *exactly* the point.
