    That and the weird aversion to introducing new or useful keywords, or even extending the symbol set that doesn’t even use full ASCII.

      Word! The whole snafu with co_routines has been quite the laughable show. It would have been trivially sortable if C++ did something like what PHP did, using a symbol to absolutely disambiguate what is a variable and what is not. That way eg.: await is a keyword, $await is a variable (perhaps a functor).

      To make it even better, $ is already unused in C++!
