There's a proposal for ES, https://github.com/tc39/proposal-class-fields, to use the octothorp (#) to denote a private member of a "class". They say that using the already "private" reserved keyword wouldn't work for making a property truly private and using the octothorp ensures that it's scoped in a way that it's not accessible to the outside world. What's your opinion of this?
Milk first or Tea first ? Jam on top or Cream on top?
