Hi Carlos,

Yeah, I remember that conversation. I thought about those issues and a
clear design with good value and a nice implementation never became
apparent to me. Since discussions didn't prove fruitful last time I
think a mockup would be really helpful to hash out the idea. An example
of the new syntax used to solve a real problem paired with the an
implementation using the existing syntax (the classic before and after)
would really make things clear.
