That's almost terminally cute, but I like it. Unless someone can
think of a major objection (such as that it makes it too easy to use
SUPER semantics rather than NEXT semantics), let's go with it.
From a programmer point of view the mnemonic is pragmatically good,
because use of ./ in shell is mostly only for commands, so people
are used to seeing it as part of an invocation process, not just a
file location process.
