Subject Re: [VOTE]Support package scope via `package` keyword
Date Fri, 29 Dec 2017 11:45:21 GMT
I'd tend to be -1 on the name "package" and 0 on the feature. The -1 is
because "package" is not a modifier by itself. I'd prefer "package private"
(the official Java name for this). So it leads to the 0, because "package
private" is kind of verbose, and doesn't save much from "PackageScope".
However, it drives me to another topic that is related and that we talked
about a few years back: having the ability to use annotations without the
`@`. So you would say `compilestatic class Foo`, or `packagescope Foo foo`.
