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.
