Huge +1 from me, but a character can't be valid for both function/variable names and operators because it'd break something in the compiler. Or at least I think that’s what I remember reading here.

That doesn’t strictly rule out custom keywords, but those are probably part of the AFAIK-still-out-of-scope macro discussion.

The same is true for the 'step' keyword - maybe most people won't ever use it - but I think there should certainly be a possiblity, be it a concrete keyword built into the language or the possibility to create my own ones.
