This appears a little antagonistic. Jachym's responses appeared to be
in good faith and serious to my perspective.

I also don't make any kind of distinction between keywords with
letters and keywords that are symbols, and I'm not clear on why this
is important to change, at least in isolation. As Richard pointed out,
if you're going to make syntax cleaner, you need to do it

And I personally don't see any readability improvement, nor anything
this permits us to do we couldn't before.
