If you are still open to lurkers suggestions, I'm partial to syntax that
can be read like common language (this is one reason why I like Python and
I mildly dislike the @ sintax). Therefore I would like to suggest
to use in J2 keywords like 'using' or 'with', which also hint to the fact
that this is only the first part of a declaration suite that will  be
continued by the 'def' statement.
