My point was simply that this was what I had thought, too. Until I (and
some of my customers) actually started using it. To date, no one has
complained about the interactions with stream, and any attempts to
change to another operator have brought objections. (In fact, the
initial implementation used operator,(). You should have heard the
objects THAT brought.)
