That's a very nice project André, and I think it will probably useful for playing around with experimental new syntax.
Thank you. Especially since the source code is extremely short:
I'd like to see this 'ideas' module (or similar) better known. It'd help a lot with complaints like Steven's.
Before telling people to use the ideas module, perhaps you ought to read the IAQs:
These sorts of hacks may be great for experimentation, but if people are so conservative that they reject an actual language feature, `for...else`, in code reviews, do you really think they're going to use `ideas` in production?
I fear that even if we could get the average developer to say "I know, let's use `ideas` to write a DSL", the project manager -- and the rest of the team -- will probably respond "Over my dead body". We're a long, long way from this sort of thing being considered acceptable in production code.
