You beat me to the email - I was going to send out a message asking
about this.

Personally, I'm +1 on _something_ going in. None of the options
presented are absolutely right, but no-one's found a better way
to spell it. Since it's going to be a part of the language that's
not used heavily, I don't think this matters too much.

(By "absolutely right" I mean you can look at it and say "yes,
that's definitely the way to do it").

And hey, we have the alpha cycle to get it right.
