I suppose the above is a statement, true for quite a number of hackers.

From all appended characters suggested so far, the comma seems to be the most 
natural notation and that is big part of what Perl was to me in past:

Making programming as natural in terms of expressing language as possible.

So in my eyes,

do { $ },
        until $Day.letsCallItA();

return $Change, unless $Payment == $Price;


loop {

, while $TheresStuffToDo;

seems to be the most natural change in syntax, if 
$WeReallyWantToAvoidTheBackslash ;)

I'm afraid though, it is also the most nasty one for parser-developers as you 
cannot tell the difference between this and an expression very early...


Regards and many thanks for making Perl6!!!
