One problem with that is that it would be odd if it didn't work with a
literal list of values (logically, I mean - there would be no actual
reason to, if you have a literal list of values you should just insert
them into the enclosing list directly), but:


- already means something, it is a function call to the first value in
the vararg list, taking the parameters a,b,c.
