That's no where near worth the price of giving up a whole symbol in my opinion.

But I think such a change should probably be bundled with an agreement on what
to actually do with the freed up character.  If the syntax is removed and D
never does anything with it, then that's a waste.  \n is not useless, it's just
an underperforming use of \.  What to do with it should be decided upon before
giving it the axe.  (lambdas were suggested somewhere).
