i like this idea! but i tink that it's too late for such incompatible change :(

really, unary operators can be added to language without any troubles.
we need only to prohibit using of the same symbol for unary and binary

unary 9 #

#n = n-1

f = #1-1

we can even allow prefix and postfix operators as long as they all have
different names
