It usually works for the "=" case but not for the AND case.

The reason is that transpose-sexps doesn't actually know about SMIE
tokens, so when it sees AND it has no idea it's an infix operator,
instead it uses the syntax-tables and thinks AND is an identifier.
For infix operators which are made of symbols (i.e. chars of
"punctuation" syntax), it happens to do the right thing, which is
neat indeed.
