It's going to be hard to avoid clashing with ==, but we could at least choose something different for ^. and ?.. Perhaps ! and ?!?

prefix/suffix with . is fairly standard EDSL practise in Haskell, no?

Yep, it is. We could use the Awesome Prelude but I prefer to avoid a dependency on a different Prelude =).

However, the ^. is needlessly hard to type, so I'm thinking about changing just this operator (and ?.) to something easier to type.

Short of using a quasiquoter, I don't think that using different operators would improve the readability much. Closing this issue.
