[wish list]: perl stuff

It would be cool to have some of the anti-statements of Perl, such as
"unless" (if-not), and "until" (while-not), because '!' just looks real ugly
beside some things.
It'd also be nice to have the...
"blah" if (foo);
thing, so people who don't wanna use three lines of code on...
Can do something besides...
foo && ("blah");
<A-ONE TWO THREE FOUR!>
Somewhat Perly. The ability to reference '[a..b]' as if it were an
inclusive list of all integers 'a' through 'b'. Like...
if (foo in [5..8])
if ((foo > 4) && (foo < 9))
<SPEAKING OF WHICH...>
I'd also like this...
"bar" in "foobarbaz"
To be the same as...
I suppose that could break some ruthlessly !d verbs which use "in" both to
check for type LIST and for membership, though.
That's all for now. Just more cosmetic suggestions from Quinn. Oh, and
remember real comments. Real comments would rock. Real comments RULE. /*
ROCK AND RULE!! */
