[racket-dev] P4P: A Syntax Proposal

People already struggle with nesting.  Excessive parens make
composition look much harder than it is.  Ergo, my desire to remove
all unnecessary parentheses.

While agreeing on goals (integration w/ reader, etc.), I'm ultimately
less interested in H-expressions than in the surface language.  That
is, I want a good surface syntax *with* a good back-end.
