The »op •« is infamous. Whatever you wish instead (my personal favorite
being no special syntax at all), problems include
a) to detect unintended printing behaviour
b) a suitable migration mechanisms

Concerning b), one you could imagine things like
a) alternative declarations (infix(l/r)_new beside infix(l/r),
infix(l/r) beside infix(l/r)_old)
b) a flag to control the semantics of infix(l/r)
c) a flag combined with a data slot to modify existing mixfix
declarations afterwards also

Personally I would appreciate some move here, but this only makes sense
if we agree what the goal is and whether it is worth the effort.
