I specified that "^this" was a lexical token so I ASI should work fine.  But you would have to say
      y ^ /'*whitespace*/ this.foo() 
if you wanted xor which is a breaking syntax change. 

I suppose we could use the universal #  solution and make it #^this although that is less visually attractive.
