13:10 masak :)
13:13 masak I'd say "I aim to please", but... I aim to get the language to be a well-designed, consistent whole.

16:26 Ven "string repetition: infix:<x>" please no :P
16:34 masak no? ok.
16:34 Ven I'd actually be okay with some unicode shenanigan here
16:34 masak I'd go with Python's infix:<*>, except (a) I kind of buy into Perl's num/str op separation too much
16:35 masak and (b) I already have infix:<~>, which I like
16:35 Ven yeah, you need to take a stand :P
16:35 Ven either + and others coerce
16:35 Ven or they're overloaded
16:36 masak yup
16:36 Ven wrt "strings to ast", I know blackcoffee does that
16:36 masak url?
16:38 Ven scala somewhat does it, but it's a bit of a lie... since it's a prefixed string, parsed
16:38 Ven https://github.com/paiq/blackcoffee
16:39 masak I looked a bit at IntelliJ, and it basically seems to put the string in a surrounding "harness" string, rather than try to put the parser in the right mode. seemed short-term but practical.
16:40 Ven yeah, that could make sense as well
16:43 Ven *but* wouldn't work with our "promised" {{{Foo @ Bar}}} syntax which would allow insertion at "places"
16:48 masak not sure if I understand you correctly. I think I imagined the text-to-Qtree factory functions to be incompatible with unquotes.
16:48 masak though I admit I haven't thought deeply about it.
