Is this mad?

Sometimes when writing code, I write things like

 

Repeat for each line protein in allProteins

Repeat for each char aminoAcid in protein

Etc etc

 

I'd really like this to look like this, defining a new function 'synonym'

 

make protein a synonym of line

make aminoAcid a synonym of char

 

Repeat for each protein in allProteins

Repeat for each aminoAcid in protein

Etc etc

 

Does the extensibility/flexibility make code easier or harder to read/use?
