It would be
fine if such syntax-only changes would be done
automatically by the programmer who makes the change in all languages
(I believe you do not have to understand a language to be able to
change "[$1 xxx]" to "xxx").
Sometimes I do, sometimes I forget. None of us are perfect.
Oops, sorry, I did not meant that as a concrete criticism, I didn't
even know who made this specific change; my remark was meant
