Can you, please, post any such ideas for making S/R consistent, especially if it breaks backward compatibility, to the Aleph mailing list? Comments from non-R users that find R inconsistent are also welcome if they substantiate their claims.
(If you have a better idea where to collect it in a single place, I'm all ear).
I'd like to collect as many such ideas as possible so we don't forget something in unlikely case Aleph gets off the ground. :)
