spent some more time thinking about this and I think we should strongly consider reverting.  simplification in the core interpreter should not be weighed lightly against complexity and breaking changes for users.

the change is also unfortunate because it reduces the expressivity of the ast

as we discuss shims, I believe the intention is to remove the `Num` / `Str` / etc. layer eventually so it's really just delaying that.

so my vote is to revert, keep the complexity in the compiler and out of user code
