It misses the point? On which strings would a set of parens spot something, that would be hard to spot with a set of colons? And what do you use to notice the difference between "foo " and "foo "?

    I originally wrote that with the first one as just "foo". No space. I goofed and wrote them both that way. Also, there weren't a pair of colons - just a leading colon. The trailing whitespace would be invisible.
