in thread Schwartzian Transform

I have no idea if it is under consideration. Probably not. I suggested it on p5p once to decidedly mixed reviews.

I note that in many other languages similar algorithms are naturally coded as chained method calls, and that winds up reading left to right...

    I advocated a list-dereference syntax to fairly positive reviews in p5p, but I doubt anyone will find the tuits to actually implement it. It would allow an entire list to be passed to a method, like map, or to dereference multi-dimensional slices of nested data structures:

    @3dSlice= $ref->@==>{qw(a b c)}==>[1..5]; $obj->GetAttribs()==>Stringify()==>Dump();
    The choice of token was not solidified. (Or was your |> mentioned in that thread as well?)
