True, but they do at least have the advantage of being well-known to
*everyone*, and using something different from what C uses would have
been a bit silly. While we're Hating operators: please consider
== and =. And I can never remember whether it's ** or ^.
My favourite operator is =~, pronounced "approximately equal to".
