Yeah, I think it could turn out ok. Using '&' and '|' in the set
operations seems more natural/consistent to me and so maybe worthwhile
to try that approach first.
It's also a nice time to introduce the bitwise operations between count
values. I thought about adding that on one occasion and also know
others have wanted it.

Sounds good to me. I'd find most of them more convenient and wish I'd
had them in the past.
