has evidently not.

A few fly-droppings break up the "text-area" and guide the eye,
too many and ...
I already have difficulties keeping `=>` and `:=` apart,
though I do know and understand them.
(ROK once mentioned difficulties

I do not think it is completely subjective and would admit
some "sequitur", but in the opposite direction.
