I never could figure out why Stroustrup implemented that "feature"; let's 
see, this operator usually means this, except when you use it in that 
situation in which case it means something else.  Now, try debugging that.

I had to learn C++ for a project at $WORK years ago (the client demanded 
it), and boy was I glad when I left...
