Actually I can easily fix the issues in my implementation.  I wasn't 
primarily upset about the implications for our fairly out of the way
browser,  more I was worried about the group not paying enough attention
to existing implementations and the problems which *could* possibly
be avoided.

Actually I think that I'd like to see a more human readable syntax,
and I'm really against things which look like APL (although I used
to love that language).  So I'd like to see more work in the area
of extending selectors.
