what a pity

for me, that's enough to say "thanks, but no thanks".

i have nothing against using + for strings, nor i think that '..' is
nicer than anything; but when i see the basic language modified just
because of carry-over familiarity with other systems, it sends a BIG
message of non-familiarity.

i've made that mistake more than once; and i've always regretted it.
now i see it as a redflag about my own newbieness on whatever new i'm
trying to bend into the old.
