I agree with this proposal, and I will adopt it for H98.
| Similarly, in 4 and 4.4.2, we have
| gendecl -> fixity [digit] ops
| but digit isn't in the list of lexemes in 2.2 and B.2, nor is=20
| it reasonable for it to be there. I suggest
| gendecl -> fixity [integer] ops
| with the value of the integer constrained to be between 0 and=20
| 9 inclusive. Incidentally, this is what GHC, Hugs and NHC do,=20
| in that they accept
| infix 0x0003 !$%
| as equivalent to
| infix 3 !$%
| presumably because doing what the Report says would be rather awkward.
