It seems to me (after reading the list archive) that everyone wants 
this, only some people want even more. But this notation is here, and it 
works, only some encouragement is missing for it to become widespread 
(like mentioning it in the reference manual and the tutorial).

Personally I would very much like it to be an officially supported 
feature (with related bugs fixed). Maybe that would make way for later 
enhancements too.
