It actually _is_ very straightforward code, just with different
syntax. There's a lot of sugar going on here!  And all this extra
syntax and rules-for-sugar means, yes, it can blow up.

I do agree that clever code is rarely worth it; better to have a good
clear design and straightforward implementation.
