Actually I have two - Forth and Euphoria, but D comes a close second.

I'm a bit confused. Are you saying that one must expect that the meaning of
punctuation in a programming language depends on the context the
punctuation is found in?

If so, then ".." in "[a .. b]" can mean exclusive range and ".." in "case a
.. b:" can mean inclusive range, no?
