Don't make me have to come after you with the half-baked thing again. We 
have already have an abundance of half-baked ideas. What we need are 
proven ideas.

Our greatest scarcity is ASCII special characters. We only have three 
left. Brendan has proposed some uses for # and they seem like a good 
tradeoff to me. Before going crazy with overload it, we should consider 
other representations.
