This isn't as ugly as one might think.. Say
erl_scan:string(" Pids @! Message ").
erl_scan:string(" Pids #! Message ").
these I can transform into something reasonable ... and @! as parallel
array send and #! and parallel hash send have a sort of Perlish beauty to
AFAICT neither @! nor #! mean anything in existing erlang code as both are
syntax errors (which in this case is a good thing).
