Well, you know my opinion. Another advantage of a symbol with two $s in it is that it's less likely to already be in use; indeed, I have rarely seen any Scheme identifiers with $ at all, even though the requirement to support it as an extended alphabetic character goes back to R2RS. Of course, any Lisp variant that supports \-escaping or || can handle $bracket-apply$ fine. -- "Well, I'm back." --Sam John Cowan <cowan@xxxxxxxx>
