You seem to have lots of ideas that involve, to a greater or lesser

Surely the nice, clean, solution to your problems is some sort of
Scheme like hygenic macro system?
That way you could define whatever extra syntax you like in it's own

statement, without impairing the understandability of the original
language, and with a clear indication of where new syntax elements
have come from.
