Except that it conflicts with an identifier used in a standard library.
Could we fix this using the same ugly hack we use for the 'as' keyword? That
is, treat it as a keyword only when used in the right context. I'm not sure
of the answer - seems like it would require extra lookahead to decide which
way 'with' is being used.
