relaxed identifiers could become what programmers actually expect.
Relaxing the rules is fine, but I would like to state for the record
that I'd rather not ever see whitespace allowed in identifiers.
That's an Applescript feature that I could do without in Perl. (Not
that anyone was proposing such a thing, just getting my objection out
there preemptively. :))
Considering that AFAIK we can use absolutely any character string at all as
an identifier as long as it is string-quoted, that feature should be enough
to let us use things like whitespace in names, so unquoted identifier names
should err on the side of being more strict and limited, I think. -- Darren
