Just FYI, Haskell has a nice solution for extensible literals without suffixes: All numeric literals are [implicitely applied]( to an overloaded function fromInteger, which will be optimized away by the compiler when a concrete numeric type is known. So implementing all the saturated/signalling/etc. numeric types in Haskell together with overloaded arithmetic operations (the typeclasses already exist) would be really easy.

Of course, lazy evaluation is not everyone’s cup of tea. Sometimes I wish there was a C variant with a Haskell-style type system.
