... of course, if P3K changed the meaning of 5 from "the object 5" to
"a constructor for an Integer class, setting the value to 5" you could
do all kinds of fun things, including:

	a = 5

And even though it would be backwards compatible, I don't really have
high hopes for it being accepted (change? we don't need no stinking
change ;-)
