Perhaps I'm missing something; but why couldn't you say '[lt]:lc $a, $b, $c'?
That is, I see the "reducing meta-operator" as a way of taking a list-associative infix operator and treating it as a function call, albeit one with a funny name. As such, you should be able to do things with a reduced operator in the same way that you could with any function that has a signature of ([EMAIL PROTECTED], *%adverb).
