We don't currently support that style of specifying interval constants,
and you shouldn't hold your breath expecting it to happen --- it will
require a whole bunch of abuse of the currently data-type-independent
processing of literal constants. I don't think anyone's even thought
about it since Tom Lockhart stopped working on that part of the code.
The fact that the syntax is accepted at all is just because he had
done some preliminary work on the grammar, but there's no infrastructure
behind the grammar for handling it.
In short, you need to calibrate your expectations as "feature addition
someday", not "bug fix".

This is the syntax we support.
