For the record, after all of my hemming and hawing, I finally decided to go with a postfix notation ala Joy/Forth/Postcript/HP Calculator etc.

I almost have the latest version ready which supports only "," as a concatenation operation. Also it will have polymorphic definitions, which allow name overloading based on the type of the top element of the stack.

If anyone is interested in following progress, and discussing more, please join the Unimperative mailing list at http://groups.google.com/group/unimperative
