Me either, other than to see how it works.
As such, I retract my vote, and am +0 on
the whole thing.
I think Fernando should try to make the
escaped-magic (oh no, my magic's gotten
loose again!) users happy.
Other than the suggestions that are valid
syntax, i.e., "+", "-" and "@", none seem
difficult to use. I kinda like the ` and / ideas,
but I don't like typing shifted characters
unnecessarily--but on the rare occasion I'd
use escaped magic, I'd probably spend more
time looking up what the escape character is
than I would typing it. In other words, I'm +0
on the whole thing.
