So I believe the opinion of the core team and the community would be generally in opposition to the style you want. I understand your arguments, but somehow they are against the entire experience of me (and, presumably, others) as developers.

To continue our friendly banter, though, do you mind sharing your background? When I read this, I wasn't sure if you're serious or trolling:

> (param_list) -> return_type => { … }

I wonder if doing something like Haskel a lot makes you more used to that sort of arrow constructs?

This is written in good faith; I hope I used the right tone to indicate that.
