Yes, well, making DTML compatible with XML is explicitly *not* a current
goal, although having ':' as an alternative separator should make folks who
have to deal with it happy.  In all other naming areas, especially indirect
reference (ie. expr="_['/folder/object']") I much prefer slashes.

There are so many ideas for revising DTML that the whole thing ought to be
done as a single large change (the syntaxgeddon) rather than dribbling out
new features and spellings over time.  That can easily make people feel that
they can't keep up with "all these crazy changes".

Just keep giving feedback on those proposals.
