We are 90% of the way to user-defined types.  With the $<type> 
objects, primitive types act ALMOST like frobs.  The only major 
difference I see is that infix operators are legal on primitive types 
and not on frobs.  Thus my addition to the wish list...

1) infix operator map to a $<type> object method (defaulting 
to their built in functionality if not defined.)
ex:  2 + 2  --->  $integer.plus(2,2)

2) infix operators be extended to work on frobs in the same way.

#2 above is actually the more needed, #1 is just a nicety to keep 
things logicly consistant.
