I think TMQL is more than big enough as it is, and that if we are to  
change it in any way we should make it smaller, rather than bigger.

I guess CTM supported both prefix and infix because isa and ako used  
to be templates. Now that they are becoming built-in (they are,  
right?), why not just limit them to infix?
