OK, good one. But you could overload ^ for that, and * for dot
product. (And % is also available)

True, :x: is cute. To answer your question, one thing that LuaMacro
can not do is parse infix expressions. You could define ':x:' as a
lexical token and replace it by '%', that kind of thing.  But for such
a simple step, gsub is your friend ;)
