* it is shorter
* the functionality resembles more shell chaining then function chaining ( for the tech savvy)
* it is used by Smarty for modifiers (but this could be a con for some)

I'm no big fan of a syntax that resembles too close PHP (or other programming languages). It might
deceive programmers (instead of helping them) and doesn't help those template authors who cannot
code (and shouldn't be required to do).
