I think it does. No doubt there are exeptions that go against this, but
it seems well established that all Pd objects order arguments like 
standard western math operators. For commutative operators it's not
a big deal obviously, but when making sense of [-~] or [/~] then 
[**~] (I'm going to optimistically start calling it that :) would
catch out a lot of people (as [pow~] did for me) by breaking the
convention that x {operator} y has a Pd object with x on the left
and y on the right.
