The bar for introducing a new type of literal should be very high. Do
performance numbers show this change would have a large impact for a large
amount of libraries and programs?

In my opinion, only if this change would make 50% of programs run 50%
faster then it might be worth discussing. The damage to readability, burden
of changing syntax and burden of yet another language feature for newcomers
to learn is too high.
