Issue #729 has been updated by Yukihiro Matsumoto.

Status changed from Open to Rejected

You shouldn't mention principle of least surprise of YOURSELF in the
proposal, for background varies for everyone.  You have no rights to
change the language (especially in incompatible way) to adopt your
personal preference before accustoming yourself to the language,
unless you're the creator of the language.  Even Ruby surprised you,
it is so for good reasons.

If you use Ruby for a while (e.g. at least a year of so), and you
still feel it should be changed for good reasons, come again.
