I'm kinda surprised this isn't already being done. Just doing this seems
like it'd be a good undertaking, regardless of whether we get overloaded
list literals. Just storing the literal as a C-like array and inflating
it to a list/array/vector at runtime seems like it should be a big win
for code that uses a lot of literals.
