At the cost of being repetitive, is there a reason for wanting this, other
than performance (discussed elsewhere)?  It just seems like there's a whole
lot of calls for more and more operators in Lua these days--on the tail of
someone asking for a table append operator comes the bitwise operator
thread, and then this.  With an operator for every operation that "inline"
would be useful for in C, there will be a lot of operators.
