[fpc-pascal] Operator overloading with Text labels or words

It's not possible to define an operator like:

Operator AbcXyz(r : real; z1 : complex) z : complex;

Is it?

Has to be a symbol?

If one could use words or text as operators this might be very
interesting, although, probably a double edged sword like Lisp where you
could embed programming languages inside programming languages.

For example:

  x := 4 PLUS 4;

Prints 8..

Operator Plus(...);

So you just invented Cobol inside fpc or something like cobol. Bad example..
