Brilliant! We'll use degrees sign for function composition
(so that it follows the convention in everything except a
handful of obscure programming languages).

That frees up dot for record.field.

And still we can scratch our heads for something to do with
section sign. SS as in set? Some smoother syntax for
swifter, saner, salubrious setting. Super!
