 Replying to [comment:4 robin]:
 > Merging, but what would you guys think about {{{s[1:4]}}} instead of
 {{{s[1,4]}}} (i.e., Pythonian)?

 I prefer the `s[1,4]` syntax, as I find it more consistent with the
 language at this point. We currently do not have the notion of a "range".
 Once we do, it would make sense to apply this concept to any enumerable
 types, like containers. Then "`range(1, 4)`" can have some sort of
 syntactic sugar (for Rubyists, that would be `1..4` and for the Pythonians
 `1:4`, so there's room for discussion :-).
