Thus, for example, 'a & b <-> c'::tsquery means something different from 'b <-> c & a'::tsquery: I find this surprising. My intuitive feeling is that <-> ought to bind tighter than & (and therefore also tighter than |). What's the reasoning for making it act like this?ah, now we remember :) The idea about equivalence of & and <-> operators appeared in situation when <-> degenerates to & in case of absence of positional information. Looks like we mixed different things, will fix.
Attached patch changes a precedences of operations to |, &, <->, | in ascending order. BTW, it simplifies a bit a code around printing and parsing of tsquery.
