Yes, I know what you meant. :) What I'm saying is that instead of

   selector1 ^ selector2
   selector1 < selector2

you'd have (for example)

   (selector1) selector2
   (selector1) > selector2

It uses the same syntax as before, we just add some kind of syntax
for marking which element is being matched, i.e. it no longer has
to be the rightmost element. There are other approaches, but I
think this is the most straightforward one.
