both your preferred aesthetics and backward compatibility.
    
    Not to keep harping on it, but there is a difference between the Language and Stellar
and the external constructs that metron has built around it.
    
    `:=`  is an external thing that metron does, separate from the language or the engine.
 It is coincidental that we use that same construct in the shell technically.
    
    The way we have done the configurations, and structuring their logical meanings is also
external to stellar, that is metron.
    
    I think we need to keep everything in it's separate pile.  We have people asking to host
in `not` metron as recently as today.
