Sure.  A thought, though.  This is going to get rather complex and how
often have you actually mistyped a hexadecimal, binary, or decimal
number?  An octal is one thing, as a leading zero is sometimes
mistakenly added, e.g., for alignment purposes or when pasting from a
zero-padded output, when you really want a decimal, i.e., with eights
and nines, not an octal.
