Since I have written Prolog parser, I understand that it is diffucult to
handle [ ]. However, I really thinks that the lack of lex and yacc for logic
programming languages really sucks, since it makes things like [ ] difficult
and makes us create idiotic syntaxes.

Of course, we should continue use the same infix operators that exists in
any other language (like +), and maybe keep the "strange ones" of logic
programming like ->.

However, I cannot see why we should invent new ones.
