Hi,

Sorry if I'm just being obtuse...

In the simplest case that Richard described, the top three rows are
only to be written once. Many environments (maybe only vi doesn't?)
may be taught to enter that at the press of a key combination. The
actual data will be almost the same, only one extra comma...

The only difference is for the examples you don't mention above, for example
    hex(5) =/= "6"
vs
    true = (hex(5) =/= "6")

Is that so big a difference?

best regards,
Vlad
