Didn't Larry actually accept Darren's proposal and add the C<before> and
C<after> operators?

Yes.  He also accepted the proposal to add min and max operators -
although I'm unsure why they weren't included as functions/methods
instead.  It seems more natural to me to say 'max($a, $b, $c)' or
'($a, $b, $c).max' instead of '[max] $a, $b, $c' or '$a max $b max
$c'.  Although it _does_ allow for such things as '$a max= $b' (which
is shorthand for something like '$a = $b if $a < $b').  And I suppose
that '&infix:<max>' doesn't stop you from having '&max' as well.
