Every one of these operators breaks existing syntax. Here are some  
examples (taken out of context):

???"this": "that"
substr $_,0,1, ... 3
!!!0

The first one is contrived, but the last two are real examples.

Is there any possibility these could be made into a ‘use feature’  
feature? Here are some suggestions (I’m sure someone else can come up  
with a better name):

use feature '...';
use feature 'yada';
use feature 'ellipsis';
