Just as much as i can't give a more compelling reason than i already  
have, there is no compelling reason to do the switch either. The core  
of my concern, _bluntly put_, was to limit our possible target  
audience for the sake of being able to write enhanced for loops.

Having said all this, the retroweaver stuff looks quite funky and  
might very well make this whole discussion obsolete in a few months.
