I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on this one. These are concerns that are certainly valid for large languages (such as the ones I mentioned in my previous message).

But, I would like to make the point that the APL community is nowhere near as large as to risk any form of chaos if one tries to implement some new features. I feel that the fact that the community is tiny could be turned to a benefit in that experimentation with new features does in fact not create these issues.
