My point being that this is hardly the crowd to solicit support for  
anything evolutionary to the nature of the Rev language. After all,  
these are the current users of the current language - not those who  
walked away because of it.

In fact, I asked for nothing to "prevail". Which would suggest some  
kind of displacement of the current syntax.

I never suggested replacing the existing language, only adding to it  
as lingo did wouldn't be a bad thing. The general response was "even  
if it doesn't affect me at all, I don't think you should get what you  
want. I have no particularly good reasons, but I'll defend them  
vigorously."

And then you get together and wonder why Rev isn't as popular as it  
should be and what things you can do to fix it.
