Trying for better partials notation

I'm trying to get partials to look better in version 3. I've tried all
kinds of tricks, including using the Notation package to do this, but to
no avail so far.

I want a form that currently displays as

  h^(0,1) [u,x]   to display as    \partial_x  h[u,x]

where \partial is the del symbol and "_x" means subscript x.

One thing I tried was

h^(a_) [b_] :=  \partial_a.b  h[b]


Matching this to the previous example was to give

  a.b = {0,1}.{u,x} = x

Thanks

Patrick
