I thought I'd investigate some more and even this catches fire;

int count;
3 %=> (++count);

I tried that because admittedly the intended calculation order in
these expressions is a bit vague.

I'm not sure what proper behaviour would be here; "++count" is a bit
like a function that should return "count + 1" and clearly functions
aren't mutable but it's also a lot like a integer and that clearly is

"++count%3 => count;" is fine but is that really more readable than "3
%=> ++count;"? I'm not very happy with having to reference "count"
twice. Some might argue I should simply use two lines but this kind of
thing is such a basic operation that I'd really like to have it on one
line and in a readable form.

WWJD? (What Would Java Do?)
