Subject: Re: [PATCH] Accept more :tangle-mode specification forms
Date: Thu, 30 Sep 2021 18:24:06 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CA+G3_PODiQjsTasVcHw=sbsY31qgg834nCPAzvJ0_QmF1G-vxA@mail.gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <875yuh9b3t.fsf@gmail.com>

I strongly oppose this patch. It adds far too much complexity to the
org grammar. Representation of numbers is an extremely nasty part of
nearly every language, and I suggest that org steer well clear of
trying to formalize this. With an eye to future portability I suggest
that no special cases be given to something as important for security
as tangle mode without very careful consideration. Emacs lisp closures
have clear semantics in Org and the number syntax is clear. If users
are concerned about the verbosity of (identity #o0600) they could go
with the sorter (or #o0600). Best,
Tom
