I have to say that I am very gung-ho about the new behavior with OF. That's a word that didn't have a previous usage, and seeing how pleasing it is, I've asked if we might want to consider rethinking if some words that were formerly prefix (AT, IN, TO might be reasonable candidates for adaptation).
But going further out there, I wanted to start a thread to discuss more generally creative usages of common words that aren't likely to be variable names. While not all the "most common" words in the scrabble universe are actually common, it's worth it to think about some of them.
IS already has a planned future. But getting into the outside the box philosophy, what about things like:
; NON could be MAYBE, but in reverse: if non [integer! even?] 13 [ print "wasn't an integer, or was and wasn't even" ] ; BY could construct pairs from expressions x: 10 y: 20 10x20 = x by y ; CAN might test operator availability if foo can append [ append foo ["this should work"] ] bar: the foo ;-- canonization? e.g. bar: (is) *THE* foo barify the foo ;-- some sort of application?
I thought it might be interesting just to have a thread for anyone's weird ideas, past or future, for novelties in the DO dialect. I keep wondering what go and run might do.
