Strawman: partial application operator

I am looking for a champion for a partial application operator strawman.

A terse, native syntax for partial application that does not affect the target of a function will improve code consistency, clarity of intent and legibility.

Assuming `arg1` is defined:

Before:

```js
import _ from 'lodash'; 
const o = { 
 foo: _.partial(foo, arg1),
 bar: bar.bind(null, arg1)
};
```

After:

```js
const o = { 
 foo::arg1,
 bar::arg1
};
```

I am aware of another idea entitled "this binding syntax" (https://github.com/tc39/proposal-bind-operator), that uses similar operator syntax to this strawman. I have no doubt there is a better syntax for my strawman!
