  Yup; I dislike using <> for the same reason, and there's a
reasonable amount of precendent for using [] for lists (SML, Perl, and
Prolog come to mind; I'm sure there're many more).

  Comma seperated parameter lists "look" right when used with
languages with parenthesized function calls; I'm not sure they'd look
quite as nice in Sieve.  I think I'd prefer disallowing string
concatenation; I don't have any strong feelings about it, though.
