**Subject**: **Re: Alternative to ~= for inequality?**

The argument of extending language syntax to get round the missing
keys on some people's keyboards was taken to the limits in the ANSI
standard for C, resulting in the universally-hated "trigraphs"
extension, which even GNU refused to implement.
Designing a language to use only the subset of characters present on
all international keyboards seems to be a road to oblivion.
Of course, you can hack the source to make your own version... or use
a macro-preprocessor to substitute ~= for != in your source while
compiling it...
