A meta-comment on the voluminous email traffic about the potentially 
puzzling semantics of the proposed setting indexing operators for Lists

Such issues being uncovered, analyzed, and subsequently fixed is an 
expected part of language evolution.  In my estimation, this is a 
relatively minor problem that can be addressed in subsequent revisions 
of the indexing proposal.
