I'm with Marc on this proposal. May be is it just a matter of personal taste
but I have to admit that I prefer this syntax to the previous one. 

I would have some comments on this proposal. In particular, I don't
feel comfortable with the initialization stuff (first extension) but
before discussing this in detail, I will wait other comments to see
where we are going with now two concurrent proposals...
