No, this is a subtly different proposal.  Antoon is proposing *slice* 
literals, not *range* literals.  Note that "confusion between ranges and 
slice syntax" was one of the reasons for rejection of `PEP 204`_.  Which 
means that if Antoon really wants his proposal to go through, he 
probably needs to make sure that slice literals are clearly distinct 
from range literals.
