What if we created a new syntax [and used it for the repr] that is not currently a valid identifier?

something like "1.INF"

 This is out of the box and might be considered insane, but what about:

>>> INF#
>>> INF # this is a comment as usual
NameError: INF

But I suppose this would be considered a breaking change, since the text "INF#" probably exists in code somewhere.
