If you force me to choose between allowing hex(3.14) or 42.hex() I'll choose the latter

I assume you meant (42).hex() here.  If you're also interested in changing the language to permit 42.hex(), well, color me shocked :D

(For those who haven't seen this before: it's a well-known gotcha. When Python's grammar sees "42.hex()", it thinks "42." is the start of a floating-point constant.  But "42.hex" isn't a valid floating-point constant, so it throws a SyntaxError.)

"42." is a valid floating-point constant. But a floating-point constant followed by an identifier is an invalid syntax. This is the same error as in "42. hex" and "42 hex".
