That's just MHO but for the untrained eye, it also means that the language
is almost incomprehensible... large expressions cannot be understood without
reading all the epxression(!?).
If the OP is still designing the language i'm pretty sure that it would be
great idea to find another, still elegant, way to write the same thing and
avoid the conflict by design... generators which find conflicts are indeed
good indicators of situations which were overseen by the designer but will
certainely loose the actual programmer.
