Linear-update suffix: ! 1 or @



        I vote for bang.  I think that it's important to reserve
special-character prefixes and suffixes for the use of application
programmers, so I'm against ``using up'' the whorl character just to
provide a visual reminder of a procedure's linear-update effect.  And I
agree with Olin that adding the digit-one character is ugly, not to mention 
arbitrary.
