I wasn't being serious.  I was going to suggest to those who complain
about && being too similar to &, that we should adopt ∧ and ∨ instead.
Nice and readable, and unambiguous. And we could use ∀ instead of
'foreach'; that would save so much typing!  I mean, D is already
standardized on Unicode, why not take advantage of all those nice
symbols that Unicode provides? ;-) (As long as you don't mention APL,
everybody will be just fine.)
