^^ this. I've been trying to phrase it for a while now. Well put.
introspection and refactoring tools, etc., etc., etc. -- they all have
their cages rattled by syntax changes. The more complex the syntax (and
this would have to be quite complex in a world of class fields, private
data, etc.), the more the cages are rattled.
adding to the cognitive load needs a good justification.
For me, the cost/benefit on this optional commas thing is just nowhere near
