No, we need the slash in color() (because it takes a variable number 
of colorspace parameters, making it difficult to tell whether there's 
an alpha or not), and it's worthwhile to make everything use the same 
syntax to aid in learning.  (It's very annoying and error-prone, even 
for experienced people, if very similar constructs use subtly 
different syntaxes.)  All the 3/4-argument functions don't really 
*need* the slash, I agree, but it doesn't hurt either; it just make it
 extra-obvious that there's an alpha or not.
