It could well be that's the only way to accomplish what you want in whatever
environment you're in. But the use of prefix notation and a funny name, for an
operator like "<" that non-programmers use familiarly as infix, would seem
contrary to the stated goal that the user needn't be a programmer.
If math can be accomplished via python, why not "<"? By "math" do you only
mean function calls, and not arithmetic operators? Is it that python eval()
can't be used because of security issues?
