Maybe that page could also mention earlier proposals and the solutions
without precedence numbers. I prefer the non-numeric approach with rules
like "(<) binds more tightly than (&&)", because it says what is intended
and it allows to make things unrelated that are unrelated, e.g. infix
operators from different libraries. Consequently a precedence relation to
general infix operators like ($) and (.) had be defined in each library.
