Well, presuming we do keep compatability [pow~ 2] will continue to behave as
it does in Cyclone.
For the proposed intrinsic [**~ ] operator then [**~ 2] would place the argument
in the exponent position according to established Pd convention, so [**~ 2]
would be the same as squaring. It would replace
though I expect most of us will continue to use that form.
For altering the base then one would say
which weems in keeping with other uses.
