Not trying to be smart, but the reasoning is in Robert’s proposal:

>> Their inclusion in the language complicates every part of the compiler stack, uses a syntax that can be confused for type annotations (https://twitter.com/CodaFi_/status/860246169854894081), contradicts the goals of earlier SE's (see SE-0060), and makes non-sensical patterns possible in surprising places.

Robert, maybe you could include some detail about how this feature is complicating the compiler stack, and what will be improved by it’s removal?


That being said, I’m all for you guys making your lives easier at the cost of something we shouldn’t be using in the first place…
