I really don't want to do anything that has the potential to make 
reject more
popular than it already is.

Ok, I think you have a valid argument here.  Why cause trouble enhancing 
something we're trying to render as obsolete and rarely used as possible?
Ok, so we'll leave reject as is, and refuse as is? (the latter works 
with "reject" and "discard", but the former doesn't.)

I still favor trying to overload "refuse" onto "reject" (so that the
implementation will interpret "reject" as "refuse" where possible,
maybe with the addition of optional tags that allow the script writer
to guide the behaviour) rather than introducing a new "refuse" keyword.
Or at least talking about it more.  But I suppose that's for the
"refuse" discussion.
