I like the feature for literals, but I'm not sure about conversions from string. It slows down the conversion for (IMO) a very small benefit.

Other languages allow it, but I've never attempted to use the feature:

$ ocaml
        OCaml version 4.02.1

# float_of_string "__1____2____.___e___101_";;
- : float = 1.2e+102
