Alright, I'm not sure what the proper channel for doing this is, but I
reckon here is as good as anywhere. I would like to propose that the
Haskell' Prelude includes the function

f $$ x = f x

with the same fixity level as $ (presumably 0) but being left
associative instead. And that $ is left as is.
