I'm having trouble understanding both your proposal and the requirement it
is trying to meet. It would help if you could describe a transformation that
is currently difficult to achieve, and then describe the functionality you
would like added to the language, and then finally give some suggested
syntax. Giving only the proposed syntax doesn't help much: you understand
what it means, but I don't.
