Assuming the parser could be made to handle this (which feels like a big
stipulation), this variation would deal with the non-explicit dynamic
scoping bug magnets.
It might violate the "looks like grit on Tim's screen" principle, but it is
explicit. I'd only be -0 or -0.5 on this idea.
Since we have Unicode though, how about:
•y += •gravity
∆y += ∆gravity
Guaranteed no parser ambiguity, and some symbols are bigger than grit. In
fact, maybe we could get the Unicode Consortium to add a glyph that looked
like 'self.' To make it stand out even better.
