in thread How scalars work (about numbers, text strings, and binary strings)

That's a great idea, and I have done it in a few examples. I'd have to fight my old habits in order to do such a thing in actual code, though.

Maybe it would be easier to do with single-letter prefixes. "u" for Unicode, perhaps. Feels better than "t" or "c" (I read "c" as "count", and would expect a number).
