Having seriously considered revised syntax as alternative, the only but
finally decisive argument against switching was that (nearly) nobody else
was using it. If you want to make your code available to other people,
you'll have to take social aspects of programming into consideration, too.

Chicken-and-egg problems can usually only be solved by some authoritative
instance. If the OCaml-team decides otherwise, I'll surely not hang
myself on the next tree. OCaml will still be a great language. It might
just have been an even greater one...
