First, thanks for reading the meditation and providing feedback.

Second, I like your idea of being able to provide a prefix and suffix. I think that I'll probably let users provide a template. Maybe:

template => "${_}_c"
Nevertheless, in the docs I will try to discourage using anything but the default. While you are no doubt correct that using a more explicit prefix/suffix may reduce the cost of maintenance locally for some settings, not having a common usage across the community may increase cost globally.

For what it's worth, in programming languages with support for real currying, there is no notation whatsoever for currying – curried calls and regular calls are look the same (because underneath they are the same) – and it's not confusing once you get the hang of it. (In fact, it's liberating.)

Thanks, again!
