Hi Raymond,

Sorry for not responding to this sooner. I'll post something to
the issue tracker. In brief, this seems an improvement over
the earlier proposal, just because there are no problems with
hashes or container confusion.  I'm still -0 on it, though---it
just seems like too much magic:  confusion will happen
much more rarely, but it'll be that much more difficult to
explain when it does occur.

IOW I wouldn't do this if it were just up to me, but not going
to object if there's support from you and others.

Mark
