Shorthand is helpful, so perhaps you could use _1_1, _1_2, _2_1, etc. (I skipped zero because you were figuring on switching to one-based indexing.)

_1_1 is more readable and succinct than arg<1,1>:

   auto const_ = lam<1>( lam<1>( arg<2,1>() ) );

   auto const_ = lam<1>( lam<1>( _2_1() ) );


   auto flip = lam<1>( lam<2>( app( arg<2,1>()
                                  , arg<1,2>()
                                  , arg<1,1>()

   auto flip =
      lam<1>(lam<2>(app(_2_1(), _1_2(), _1_1())));
