Ideally, redesigning Haskell syntax for 21st century should take more scientific course.
But with know-how here still much lagging we can only tap on experience with symbol
manipulation in mathematics. For instance: construction of formulas should store some
dynamics supportive for the underlying thought process. So for example  "f a b" springs up
no association while "f(a, b)" kick-starts the right thought.
