Relatively new to Julia, and like most people here love it. But I miss the readability of
or. I discovered a few git issues on moving to a python-like syntax for the
or operators (like https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/issues/5238).
The issue comments seem numerous and more or less universally in favor of the change, with interjections in favor from people like @StefanKarpinski as recently as 2015 (two years after the issue was technically closed), so I was just wondering: why did this die? Does it still have to?
