It's not a prefix, it's just a tag. We have +~ and -~, so in the
current configuration, ! is not necessary. Using as a prefix is
an interesting idea. I'll think about it.

Mostly, when you see programmers, they aren't doing anything.  One of
the attractive things about programmers is that you cannot tell
whether or not they are working simply by looking at them.  Very often
they're sitting there seemingly drinking coffee and gossiping, or just
staring into space.  What the programmer is trying to do is get a
handle on all the individual and unrelated ideas that are scampering
around in his head.
