Yes, but you can also use prefix, alphanumeric constructors as infix
by placing them in backticks. This can be nice sometimes:

    data Expr = ...
              | Expr `In` [Expr]
              | Expr `And` Expr
              | Expr `Or` Expr

    case e of
        e1 `In` es -> ...

Best regards,
