syntactic sugar:


@codesections Depends. I like sugars that are just over a tiny thing that would be annoying to type, things like arr[] are fine, builtin list comprehensions are not worth anyone's time.

I'd say operators are syntactic sugar only in languages where you can't make new ones, I don't really like how operators are done and overloaded in languages that do that, but that's not to say I dislike it much.

Because overall I prefer a consistent representation of things I'm not going for delicious.

@codesections where "do that" is having only a closed set of builtin operators.
