I have to say... sadly, that I agree with most of this. The -> operator being taken out rankled me quite a lot. I almost jumped into the minor list war that was going on over it and the concat op waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day but didn't feel qualified or entitled (since I was just following along, not doing any code/tests/etc). -> is very visual, almost like inline code flow charts.

And I'm sorry to say this too but it's on point, even if sideways and not in reply to Jenda; I think it needs saying. If one character makes that much of a difference, one doesn't know how to type and should really put some effort into learning.
