Hey Jan, Just posting here why I voted "no": it is not your implementation proposal, but rather the concept per-se that IMO shouldn't land in the language.
Operator overloading makes call-site code reading extremely hard, and it makes the language much more complex for very little benefit. Everything suggested in the RFC can be done by using explicit arrows: `->` (method calls), which lead to expressively named methods and parameters. I have posted similar thoughts about `->__toString()` and `->toString()` when it comes to cast operations vs explicit calls at https://github.com/ShittySoft/symfony-live-berlin-2018-doctrine-tutorial/pull/3#issuecomment-460441229 Overall, without type classes and infix functions, operator overloading is, IMO, just messy.
