Eh.  I'll be a solid +1 on this /if/ you use your time machine to
begin the moratorium right after the "with" statement was introduced.
The rationale you gave applied as much then as it does now -- and if
you do this, then we won't need to discuss it now, since it will
already have been done.

If you won't use your time machine, fine, +0.9.  I'm taking off a
tenth so you realize there's a steep cost for refusing it interfere
with history.
