This may seem silly, but would it be possible to support both grammars
during the alpha cycle so people get a chance to try it out (especially
those people most likely to use the feature) and weed one out for the beta?
I take it the grammar changes would be only a small source of bugs, and in
any case, dumping one after the alpha should reduce the bug count.
