Oh I see.  I interpreted that as lack of disambiguating parentheses, but
it's not unreasonable to assert that quantifiers should always come before

Syntax certainly is hard.  I remember being completely puzzled the first
time I saw

| dx (long expression in x)

when I expected

| (long expression in x) dx

(Those are integral signs, by the way!)
