I think I made it pretty clear that I think that the breaking of <<< 
into tokens should also be changed in a similar way.

Granted this case might surprise less people, but I tend to prefer 
technical arguments rather than "suprise" ones. Technically the issues 
involved in how to break =<< vs <<< into tokens are very very similar if 
not the same as far as erl_scan is concerned -- and are unrelated to 
people's surprise level.
