Here's an RFC that's been lying in my drafts for uh… 26 months:
I expect this should be an uncontroversial proposal, but maybe I'm
jinxing it there. I hope you all like it. :)
Thanks to Nikita for reminding me it existed and thus motivating me to
pick it up again. Also thanks to Nikita for suggesting a potential
follow-up RFC, and also making the “Saner string to number comparisons”
RFC, both providing additional impetus for me to finally clean this up
and put it to discussion.
