|Perl: the Markov chain saw|
Way too late for the discussion, but one wonders if the removal of if condition parens is really worth the requirement to invent a concept such as "unspace".
I mean really? "unspace"! If ever there was a 'seemed like a good idea at the time' that became 'a rod for our own backs' in the making; that's gotta be it.
Especially, if most potential users are like me, and will always be using a mix of different languages at the same time.
I'm pretty sure that if I ever make any regular use of P6, I will use parens around if conditions anyway. Simply because it is easier to not go through the pain of unlearning the habit (perhaps:'unparensing'?) for just one of the languages I (potentially) use every day.
