I got similar idea here, but my version is that you don't have to use
u: or v:.  When I was looking for the feature that 'foo[bar?]'
provides yesterday, I saw that the the special operators for use flags
don't conflict with the version operators.  And only use flags use
non-operator characters, so they could be used alone and
distinguishably without any.


So this time instead of using () for versions and [] for use flags, we
can just have [] for both.  Of course this again requires that
independent and rearrangeable version elements be implemented.
