> This is something Daniel and I have talked about before, and now that we have the @ syntax,
this is easy to implement. The idea is that relation names are no longer required, and you
can instead use a fat arrow (obviously that can be changed) to signify this. The benefit is
not having to engage in the mental load of having to name everything.
> One other possibility is just making "alias =" optional. I fear that that could be a
little TOO magical, but I welcome opinions.
