Don't get too discouraged. Though I am agnostic on your proposal, I
find the : and . syntax to be a huge source of errors and confusion,
both because . works as : in most other languages, and because the . and
the : resemble one another in both function and appearance leading to
So, to calm down things, I will try hard to avoid answering messages
about OOBit subject, ok?
I think at the very least the syntax should be changed from a : to
another symbol (-> ?) to make the distinction clearer. Until that
happens, I share your desire to find a way to make the . operator work
as the : does.
