I see your point, but I disagree with the conclusion because I don't
think we need to start _using_ this syntax in external packages right
away.  So I think we should choose the syntax which is better in the
long term rather than let backwards compatibility fix this forever.

However, we could implement both syntaxes, use the $ syntax in the
short term, and convert external packages to the # syntax in a few

Let's see what Eli thinks about it.
