And yet, the fact that it's hard to explain your intuition to others
(Steven is not the only one who's finding this hard to follow) surely
implies that it's merely that - personal intuition - and not universal
The *whole point* here is that not everyone understands the proposed
notation the way the proposers do, and it's *hard to explain* to those
people. Blaming the people who don't understand does not support the
position that this notation should be added to the language. Rather,
it reinforces the idea that the new proposal is hard to teach (and
consequently, it may be a bad idea for Python).
