Well, there is an easy solution to this.  Myth isn't designed by
committee.  Write some code, and submit it.  If Isaac likes it, it goes
in.  If not, he'll either give you feedback on how to make it acceptable,
or he'll tell you he doesn't like the idea.  In any of the above cases,
you have code that works for you, regardless of what he thinks.  It is
rare to convince someone else to write code for you, especially for
obscure features, and endless discussion is unlikely to help.
