Ah yes, good point.  I thus withdraw my PHP comment, and we're
left with the examples in S02.  

It could be said that closure interpolation would be off by 
default, and enabled using the :c adverb or the C<qc> quoter 
that is already part of the spec.  Then we would have

    "These { curlies } aren't interpolative."
    qc "These { 'curl' ~ 'ies' } are."

I don't have a strong opinion one way or another -- I'm just
trying to point out some alternatives and things the current
spec already offers.  But perhaps this is all a reminder as to
why I try to stay out of the language design forum.
