Feedback sought on Optional Braces

Readers here know that I’m not entirely a fan of Scala 3’s optional-braces feature. (I don’t entirely despise it, but I don’t like it, and personally I think it’s been pushed too hard in the leadup to 3.0.)

Anyway, Martin has opened a discussion around it on the Contributors Forum. Folks who have thoughts should give that a read, and consider chiming in. (I’m still gathering my own thoughts.)

One meta-comment around that — this issue has raised a lot of passions, and discussions about it have recently become excessively heated. So please, keep it civil: a frank discussion of the pros and cons are in order, but flamewars aren’t. Thanks!
