Not true. | op has a lower precedence than >> or + ops.
I was already bitten by that with the , (comma) op. It
was the most natural for sequencing, but it has the lowest
precedence. Lower than =. Gosh I wish I could do:
r = a | b, c;

You have a point though with the + op. Right now Spirit
uses the prefix + (for one or more), the prefix * (for zero
or more). Infix + for sequencing? Hmmm... Well C++ uses
the infix plus for mult and the prefix for deref.
