Yes. That’s one of the two sources of confusion, the other is the plain old 
English `this’ used in the unquoted list and surrounding discussion.

Having `this-here’ emphasizes the first atom of the list being discussed as 
distinct from `this' in an oop sense or ordinary `this' in a sentence. It bends 
over backwards more for a non-programmer.

Anyway, your call.
