Technically yes, though I'm more and more inclined to just do away
with the ? at the beginning.  Having any mix of ?/?? at either end
overcomplicates the syntax handling and we're trying to simplify that
code as much as possible.

For now, just use ?/?? at the end, and when we complete the internal
syntax/execution pipeline in trunk we can see how things end up
looking for them at the beginning, with a possible outcome being that
they get removed.
