works (making colon optional) and maybe even making comas optional
and then show us how it works and then maybe convert the whole
stdlib to be colon free (and maybe comma free)... this is probably
going to convince more people that you are right... or it will
convince you that you are wrong :). I think it will be quite simple
to do (as you say it they are there just because so it should be a
simple grammar change).
Good luck, and I will probably play with your demo python
Thank you very much for the suggestion! I don't think making colons
optional is a technical problem at all. Eventually I'll have to
convince people on this list that it would be a (slightly) better idea
(best would be to kill colons, semicolons, and as a consequence, one- liners, completely); or they convince me the opposite. I'm doing the
harder part first.
