ah, so the OP is asking about Higher Order Messages a-la F-Script? (or 
hyper ops a-la perl6)

I don't think this can be done in pure python. You can do half of it, say:
collection >> stuff # map the stuff over the collection
or
collection >> operator << othercollection

but you cant do

stuff operator << collection
