Re: #O, an alternate view

Actually, I wasn't going to mention it, but now that RLB has come close...
If you're really paranoid, why not write #8*777777000000*, or
#16*FFFF0000*, or whatever?  Then I guess #o* and #x* suggest themselves
after all.

While we're at it, I still, think my idea of using "[n]" as a radix-n
point had some merit.  7307[8] => #o7307, FF00A3BC[16] => #xFF00A3BC.
Who cares if it's harder to parse?  You get floating-point in exchange!
(Pi = 3[8]11037552, approximately.)
