I'm adding a convenience function for one usage of the op="<<"
tag (see above). <op> itself is unmodified. I realize that
changing the name of operators & and << would result in
lots of breakage in the extensions. I like your idea of renaming
them, though. :)
<bit> is for addressing a bit in a word. The C idiom is (1<<n), but
other languages name this "shl(1,n)" or have built in bit addressing
syntax (Pascal, Modula, and Oberon's sets for instance).
This is in preparation for moving constants from X.h to enumerations
