I think though that there's a better middle ground to be struck here. I
don't know what it is or where it is, but SiLLy seems too verbose at the
moment. I wish I could say more about what I think that middle ground is
or should be, but I can't - I'm really just saying that I personally
wouldn't be happy working at a company writing logic sheets using the
lingo supplied in the example. It seems to make things easier for *Cocoon*
(or AxKit or whatever), but not for the developer...

PS: Don't hold your breath for Perl6 :-)
