I agree with getting rid of the Type... because we could use ... in slicing (see String manifesto). Why must it be an attribute and not just "*" ? The advantage I see is that this will play great in also deconstructing collection like things like Array, Slice and Tuple. This is already familiar to python and ruby users.
