It's early days, it will take time to refine. Once we start implementing
this in the parser, we will find aspects that will not work, due to
ambiguity; so stuff will come out of the wood work. Even after
implementation we'll have plenty of time to tweak it, until we start
using it in ernest, it's hard to get a real feel for things.
Btw I'm not sure what you mean by "alternatives" here, I suspect that
will confuse others too:
The 'case' phrases are not alternatives, but 'break' is available to

and have problems with, writing English texts.
Now I *suspect* (!) that this trait also has an impact on your ardour
or agility as a programming language designer. Harshly said, some of
the constructs you propose read as awkwardly as some of the sentences
one can find in documentation written by you.
OK, so I've said it. Perhaps you think about it, and please, please,
don't be cross with me. After all, it's only Drools I'm caring for ;-)
