I'm not aware of anyone that would miss octal literals, but there are plenty of hardware weenies like me that would find "int("DEAD", 16)" less convenient than "0xDEAD".
Although octal literals is handy for things like os.chmod(). Unix weenies shouldn't be totally forgotten in P3K. I'm also for keeping hex() and oct() although if you want to move them out of builtins, that's fine. +0b1 for binary literals and %b.
