why not change x!y to x.'y ? seems a bit easier to remember, saves ! for something else. dunno if there's a parsing problem with it.

Hmm, never thought of that. I'll consider it.

What if x.y!z expanded to ((x y) z)? Then if x were '(1 2 (3 4) 5), x.2!1 would give you 4. If (x 1 3) did work like cut, then you could do x.1.3!1!1, which would also give 4 in this case.
