Any chance we'll see shortcut syntax for @include and @extend?

when i first heard sass was creating scss (following less' suit, no?)
i thought great! but when i see '@include' everywhere it seems verbose
all of a sudden.

otherwise, love it!

thanks

I'm not opposed to adding shorthand syntax in .sass files (@include is already + there and @mixin is already = there). But in .scss files a shortcut syntax is a unnecessary violation of the CSS3 parsing specification which would limit our compatibility with existing css3 based tools.

I'd love a shorthand symbol for @extend. Or is there one already?

I've always wanted this and just figured out a quick way to do so. I have one mixin for extend that looks like this:

@mixin ext($name)
  @extend .#{$name} !optional

then I may extend other classes in a shorter format:

.foo
  background: red

.bar
  +ext("foo")

result:
.foo, .bar {
  background: red;

Cool trick! Use it a lot, the past few days. Thanks!
