 Replying to [comment:3 ross at soi.city.ac.uk]:
 > Another variant would be to support anonymous flags directly

 True though I suspect it looks a bit weird to the uninitiated. We know to
 read the conditional syntax as an implication constraint which can be
 applied in either direction but I suspect many people read it in a
 directed functional way. I have a feeling that the anonymous flag would
 really throw people :-)

 Perhaps we should ask opinions on the libraries list.
