| How do many people read it?

  Many people read (< a b c) as "a less than b less than c".  I think this
  defeats the purpose of a function-application prefix syntax.  I even find
  the function name "less" to be slightly misleading since the values have to
  /increase/ from left to right for "less" to return true.  Well, anyway.

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
