So far the cast syntax seems to be the most popular:

(adaptername)ob (dc)context/title

Why don't we use adaptername(ob)? Then it looks exactely like in Python! Less to memorize.

Because that would be the top of a slippery slope.

People would want:

  callable(arg1, arg2, arg3)


  foo/bar/callable(x/y, a/b/c)/q/r

which is arguably the path to madness.

A number of folks replid negatively to this idea when
it was noted in the proposal.
