Am I the only one who sees a hyphen and thinks "binary minus"?  Just 
because the parser can disambiguate this use of it doesn't mean the 
reader's brain can do so as easily.

(I assume we're talking about the same character, 0x2D, and not something 
from further afield in the Unicode tables, right?)

Also, what happens when code gets run through mailers or other programs 
that think a hyphen is an acceptable place to break a line?  Does the 
code still work after copy and paste with that newline inserted?
