No, i just have high expectations :)
Even with just the current functionality, if there is a typed hole
in an expression like `f = _ x y` if the user knows that the
implementation will involve some specific global function bar, she
could write `f = _ bar x y`.

In a way it even inspired me to (finally) make the announcement. I
have not, but will try to find time to play with Mote in the next days.
