Since the radix specifier/function feels is followed by some
variety of circumfix, it feels like an assertion that everything
within brackets is a single entity – unlike something undelimited
like `0b010ax`, say. So I’d expect it to be like however it is
that `say +'oops'` behaves, which is probably to say `0`.

Although it would be useful if this were an interesting kind of 0
that knows it came from a parse error (and maybe even which radix
was asserted).
