Oh, that's good.  Because I didn't see how the information gained was
going to be of any benefit.  :)

But seriously:  I don't understand why it's imoprtant to be able to
see at a glance whether the function is `ours' or not.

Also seriously, there must be some cost, because I have it on good
authority that

If that's true, it will have to be fixed.

Well, I don't know.

Or at that point you have to remember.  But if you can remember while
you're writing, why can't you remember while you're reading?

Well, I think that at this point I've said pretty much everything
I have to say on the subject, so whatever you decide, I'll feel OK
about it.

No not quite, I just thought of something else: If the real issue is
that you need the & form for syntax highlighting, and you need the
syntax highlighting, then wouldn't it be best to use the & form for
*all* function calls?

OK, now I'm really done.
