I do object to '('.  

Partly because I am tempted to think ')' will undo whatever it's other
pair did.

$ is indeed better than @.  Remember `$' is used in conjunction with
selective display.

I object to M-o.  The verb `Omit' is generally not used.  It has bad
connotations.  (My mom will spank me if I omitted something)

Let's omit omit and stick with show or hide.
