No, to be consistent with other infix operators for integers +*/- 
you would use symbols for bit manipulation.

If you resuse integer operators for booleans, then conditional 
expressions get more difficult to read when they contain both. 
Which is bad for usability.

Side note: Simula had or, or else, and, and then. So, both with 
and without short circuit.
