What are your thoughts on operator overloading?

(on a scale from "I can't live without it" to "I'm literally Drew DeVault")


@codesections honest answer: special syntax should exist exactly for those things for which i am used to reading this special syntax

practical answer: i'd rather have to jump-to-definition once or twice than have my program subtly break because `==' only does the right thing for specific built-in things (looking at you, Java)

@codesections (this only works in a decent development environment where I can ask the system "where does this notation come from?". however, operators are not a necessity to having hard-to-understand code so if my system does not have jump-to-definition i'm screwed anyways)
