then
is an infix function but
thenBy
isn't?

Declare a function as
infix
only when it works on two objects which play a similar role. Good examples:
and
,
to
,
zip
. Bad example:
add

Comparator then Comparator
has both objects playing similar roles,
Comparator.thenBy(selector)
does not

I see. So Mockk blatantly ignores this guideline with all its infix functions like
every { foo() } returns 0

mockk isn't the only DSL that breaks conventions, but stdlib (non-DSL) interfaces do try to promote standard style
