[Haskell-cafe] Crazy idea: overloading function application notation

This is a crazy idea I've been working on: overload the syntax "x y" so it can
mean function application "f x = f(x)" or multiplication "x y = x*y". The
reason is simply that I appreciate the brevity of MLs function application
but I also appreciate the brevity of Mathematica's multiplication.
Is it possible to implement this in Haskell using type classes? Is there any
way this could actually be practicable?
