Hi,

|Matz told us what he was going to do on the new block definition in [ruby-talk:15931], and nobody reacted to this. The only problem was the syntax: some people dislike "<...>". Forget the delimiter syntax problem for now, this is a minor problem and we cannot satisfy everybody. Does this solution solve almost all the problems in this thread? If not, can remaining problems be fixed even if this is implemented? (exporting new variables out of the block for example).

I proposed three changes before (forgot message number).

  (a) <...>
  (b) block-local variable declaration
  (c) automatic local variable propagation

concrete syntax for b is not defined yet.
