Thanks for the reference.  Well, check out the two alternatives, a~b
and a!b, which are easy on the eyes, and weren't proposed, but don't
allow expressions.  (Turns out 'if a:b' is valid, so never mind that
one.)  I also won't let you forget that $ and ? are unused so far
too.  I see syntax was one of the complaints.
