Erm... I am not joking.
Do you really think I recall every discussion or braindead proposal from
these mailing lists over the last 20 years ?
I appreciate your high esteem of my memory, but alas, age takes it's toll... ;-)
But presumably you mean some construct as
With QMyVeryLongQueyObjectName as Q do
// Do things with Q
That is a modification of the current "with".
I assumed you meant to make an unchanged "with" safe.
That said, a construct such as "With QMyVeryLongQueyObjectName as Q do" has my support...
