Yes. If I was on Leopard, I would probably reconsider. Since I'm not,
it isn't usually confusing - this is the first time I've come across @
being used for anything else so I just wasn't thinking about other

the number of people interpreting it otherwise but that only occurs to
me in retrospect...)

Apologies for confusing things/being confused/etc...
