As a newcomer I am very concerned about so many syntactical constructs in E. Is
this a case of "knowing too much" -- trying to do too many things for too many
people with disparate backgrounds?

Would very much prefer to see a sharp focus, a simple clean language that does
"one" thing well, and expresses it through a simple spare syntax.

KISS -- Keep it simple, syntactically.

Best,
Vijay
