First consider, how does eschewing all the possible operator syntaxes -- prefix, postfix, infix, circumfix -- along with all precedence; in favour of a single operator syntax, increase flexibility?

Then read How non-member functions improve encapsulation in full. Then note the author.

Then consider how the ability to call any function as a "method" of any random variable -- regardless of anything -- will play amongst the Duck typing is no typing crowd.

And I'm far from excited. I'm bored to see this being raked over again; especially upon such scant & broken reasoning.

There is simply no reason to lose one's cool in order to counter such illogicality.

    Who talked about eschewing anything?

    How does adding another way to TIMTOWTDI make the whole thing less flexible?
