Thanks for taking the lead on this. Just in case you want more examples Fortran 90/95
allows for operator definition like R see:
http://h21007.www2.hp.com/portal/download/files/unprot/fortran/docs/lrm/lrm0184.htm#generic_inter_op

I think this is ideal as I am used to it, but at the least I vote for a
multiplication operator.
