I wrote a package the other day to simulate Python's chained
comparisons syntax; it's on PLaneT and shows both the use of the
syntax objects in preserving source locations, as well as using the
hygiene to bind the values between the binops to avoid duplicate
evaluation.  Syntax objects are a bit rich because they're doing a lot
of work.
