Is the idea like this?
^a 1st child of a
^^a 2nd child of a
^^^...^a nth child of a
I can think of two problems:
a) prefix "^" shadows suffix "^" because ambiguous suffix operator is taken
a^^ -> (infix^ (infix^ (symbol "a") end)) (actual, parse error)
(suffix^ (suffix^ (symbol "a"))) (expected)
b) we can't specify <n>-th child as parameter
Perhaps (a) can be fixed if ambiguous operators are resolved by binding
strengths. It seems the current resolution is awkward:
% hg debugrevspec -v 'a^:b'
I think it should be taken as '(a^):b' because "^" has higher binding than ":".
