I'd like it well enough for my own code, although I don't feel the need as
keenly as others working on PyObjC or the like. Yet I'm more concerned that
we get the right answer than that we get an answer now.

I'm generally found of the C#-style syntax, but I grant that its problems in
interactive mode are awkward. Thus, it feels a bit like the least bad
solution rather than a good solution.
