I'm not so sure it is, and you can almost always write it using ($)
without too much trouble. I really only ever use (.) for pretty simple
things like filter (not . null).

Again. I'm thinking (<>) is a good operator. An intelligent editor
would pull them together a bit more to make it look even more like a
I could see myself using <> and >< for dot and cross products in
linear algebra, though, but I'm willing to sacrifice those operators
for the greater good :-)
