It's really quite amazing how much just adding one set of brackets to a language helps.

Yeah, but its just really annoying how long it takes the keyboard manufacturers to actually put the new brackets somewhere useful.

IMO this is something you need to consider, and especially fromt he POV that keyboards vary quite a bit around the world. AltGr-7, AltGr-8, AltGr-9, Algr-10 are where the { [ ] } brackets live in germany which is already frustrating enough for someone that grew up in Canada. I dread having to type these new brackets. But no doubt you are already hip to this problem :-)
