Not meaning to be an ass, but is it really worth it?  Is it *that* big a
problem?  Thinking about both in terms of your time and effort and the time
and effort of everyone else who has to change their code to use the new
operators, and also in the added complexity to the language and the
confusion caused by adding the new @ operators.
