Yup, but then again, why not using infix at all? If you're mixing
infix and prefix notation that way, you'll get less readability
than using prefix notation only.
My suggestion is: use infix notation with a lot of parens if
readability by the occasional reader is the priority; use prefix
notation (perhaps generating it with eval/translate :) when
code elegance is the priority.
