Looks like we need to rehash this thread at least enough to determine
who is responsible for causing us to rehash it.

MAL said it would break code.  I asked how.  Skip and Tim obliged with
examples.  I said their examples exhibited bad style; neither of them
claimed they were good style.

In the end, I observed that while it could break code in theory, I
doubted it really would break much code.  Furthermore, I believe that
the code it will break is already obscure so we needn't worry about
