I like this suggestion. It avoids conflicts with Template Haskell and
list comprehensions. Conor McBride also picked these brackets as idiom
brackets in his preprocessor she.
[$blah| ... |] could be replaced with (blah| ... |) and (| ... |)
could be syntactic sugar for (quote| ... |) and use whatever
definition of quote is in scope.
Would this introduce severe ambiguities? I can think of (foo||bar)
where you need to go to the end to see that it does not end in |).
Underestimating the novelty of the future is a time-honored tradition.
