    initial v1  
    11Remember that defining a new mathematical variable might be the first thing that a new Sage user will want to do, so from a UI point of view, `_.<x> = SR()` is a disaster. It looks like a meaningless string of symbols. `var('x')` or `declare_var('x')` or `symbol('x')` or similar at least have a chance to indicate some meaning when someone glances at the code/worksheet/notebook.

     3Maybe something like `math_variable('x')` would convey what Sage is doing here, and in particular will distinguish this from Python variables.
