(currently) require white space before ", {, [ and (. (I could be forgetting other cases.) You're right in that respect (I had forgotten about that), but I feel that a set-word should require at least one whitespace after the colon. Otherwise there's this problem:
>> x:"Hello!"
== "Hello!" Works OK with string! values, now try a integer! value:

== x:123
>> x
== "Hello!" Hmmmm...

== url!
