is the word OOP persuade so strange on you? two days above someone
wrote about the same operator, just with different name and i don't
see any critics from you or any other FP purists

you missed the key of my idea - because '.' syntax is so needed for
modules and records, we must either support this as special syntax
rules or invent some functional explanation for this syntax. i propose
just such explanations, while all other records proposals just say
"this must become a special syntax"
