That leaves 'using', which would seem a logical keyword to choose. The

I agree, and if the language was being created today the Authors would
probably go that way. Be hard pressed to get them to add a keyword at this
point in time though..
Personally something I'd really like to see in 5.2 is a _RESERVED global
table, which lists all the reserved words (or alternatively, a lookup table
with each reserved word set to true). Currently I need to make my own every
time I want to write a save table function (I don't like ones that escape
where it's not needed), and I'm always left feeling like there should be a
more futureproof way.
