I think this is a good idea. I don't know why the syntax would
have to change though..

I think the biggest thing was hit on by Randall. There is a need to 
break up the system.

Back to the syntax...
I guess you could declare things like this...

x: x y: y = ( x: x. y: y.).


x: x (0) y: y (0) = (x: x. y: y.).

Then this could be called as   x: ~ y: ~.  The '~' could mean 'insert
default value'?
