It's a bit off-topic but I was thinking the same *before* porting a
real application to 8.3. There are cases where it's just annoying to
not have the casts anymore but I find also a bunch of broken
behaviours (interval > int for example) which I'm quite happy to
detect and fix.
But I'm pretty sure we'll have a lot of feedback on this, probably
mostly negative at first.
