Feel free to remove it now.  

On a related note, passing any block type to @encode() currently returns "@?".  I wonder if we should change it to return the encoding of type of the block or, if this would break existing code (@? does already in quite a few cases that were written before blocks were introduced) provide some other mechanism for accessing this at compile time?
