[Python-ideas] slice.literal notation

I considered `slice[...]` however, this will change some existing
behaviour. This would mean we need to put a metaclass on slice, and then
`type(slice) is type` would no longer be true. Also, with 3.5's typing
work, we are overloading the meaning of indexing a type object. Adding the
slice.literal does not break anything or conflict with any syntax.
