But that only saves you 1 keystroke, and eliminates unary .. for any
other use.

I'd've felt the same way before I started revising S9, whereupon I
discovered I wanted ^5 all over the place.  It was either that or
make special exceptions for lists containing one element, and that
was gross.

I dunno.  I'm not confused by it, and I'm easily confused.  Or maybe
I'm just confused about not being confused...
