Of course, what people mean when they write
"GetValue" or "get_value" is really "get value". So when
will we bite the bullet and dissolve this ambiguity forever
by allowing whitespace in identifiers. Wouldn't you all
want to be able to write:

  my bank account = my bank account + my salary

Or why not:

  if ok to continue and has attr(the current node, "next"):
