Sounds good to me. But we'd have to keep a complete list of which characters can be used that way, or else the parser wouldn't know where to slice the tokens, right? Or can you think of a general way to do it?

This topic really makes me wish I knew a function-level programming language like K. It's all about composing a certain set of basic functions, and it's amazingly concise, so I feel like someone with that background would be able to suggest a Right Way of handling functions at this level.

You could just set aside a handful of symbols. Every possible combination of them is a possible infix operator.
