Only a nightmare to read in the sense that any new writing system is; once
you've learned it, it's a lot quicker (I understand) than reading an
ordinary program, since it's so much briefer and more expressive for a wide
range of mathematical operations.

This is an advantage over J and K, APL-derived languages that use ASCII. On
the other hand, they don't need special fonts or keyboard stickers...
