One of the reasons I'm for free form source is that I've been looking
forward to the first Obfuscated RPG contest.  Maybe the prizes could be
AS/400 t shirts and pizza coupons.

"CF-Spec" or "Free-form Calculation Specification"

CF - spec?  Is that what we referred in the military as a CharlieFoxtrot or
something 
like that?

Will we be able to do multiple operations on a single line, seperating them
with some 
sort of punctuation?  Then we can start having confusing code contests like
the Unix 
people, or see who could make the prettiest pictures, for example:

                           eval
                   result=thisonebighonking
             longvariablefromsomeonewholovestotype
           +thissimplelittlevariable;eval thisother
             field=thefieldwiththetotalsinit-
                 thatfieldwiththeexceptions
                           /234
