Why can't we use + to concatenate strings?
It took quite a while to figure out that tilde (~) is used for string concatenation in FS. I'm sure there's a good reason why you chose to use a special operator, but I wonder what that might be, and why tilde was chosen specifically? I've never encountered that in any other language.
