Wonderful! Mirroring the generic grammar is really clever. I wish I had
thought of it myself.

When I realized operator+= and operator+ were confusing (see my reply to
John Maddock's posting), the only other operators I looked at were <<= and
<<. They have been satisfactory in practice, but /= and / will be better.
