How about this one, it is a bit of a hack but does at least correctly
correct the formal characterisation of the operator to unary.

Working on getting this tested a bit better before sending it out
formally.

When we hit a close parenthesis, any binary operators we have without right
hand sides cannot actually be binary if the code is correctly formatted.
Go back and fix up any we get wrong.
