That seems to be a perfect situation then.  Why do we need
votes from people who are happy with the @pie syntax?  It's
already in Python.

On the other, if there are people who are dissatisfied with
@pie, they can vote, use the results to help them focus
their energies on the most likely alternate candidate(s),
and finally present a united front saying "uh, @pie
sucks, and we have a wide consensus that syntax XXXX
would be much better for these reasons..."

Wouldn't that make sense?
