I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative.

Programming is great because you can just take that huge messy chuck from the middle of your function and hide it away under a new name in a new function and feel good about how you "cleaned up" the original function by abstracting the internals.
This is exactly how I used to clean my room as a kid - I'd refactor all the junk on the floor to be under my bed. Boom - problem solved.

I'm weird that way.
I love Greg Heo’s walkthroughs of Swift compiler parts. This one is about the code generation for automatic Equatable conformances: https://swiftunboxed.com/internals/synthesized-equatable-conformance/
