I know, it is impressive that somebody went through all that trouble in
modifying the compiler, but I think it would be wise for anybody in the
future, to first mention your issues and ideas here, before simply
implementing it.

Unless there is some command line parameter that can toggle that behaviour
(like what was done with '-Sc' C style operator support), then his work
would not have been in vain. In this case, I would suggest by default that
that syntax is not allowed. The command line parameter will enable it.
