Thats why:

$ grep '&&' /usr/share/misc/operator
&&                              left to right

Im pretty sad it was removed, as it's the same list as in the book K&R,
so we lost a piece of unix history with it. I know we still have the
manpage, but then we should remove the unfamiliar "you cant tune a
fish" line from tunefs because its redundant...

its a lucky charm
