Not useful very often? How about every time that you create a pointer to an int
(or any other primitive type) and want to immediately initialize the value
that's pointed to? It seems like it would be _highly_ useful whenever dealing
with pointers to primitives. If it's not useful very often, it's because
pointers aren't used very often.

And a syntax such as new int(7) or new bool(true) would be completely
consistent with all of the other types. In fact, adding it would make the
language _more_ consistent, not less. This would be particularly true when
writing generic code.
