Hate this. Looks like a typecast of some kind, int is way to overused for this. If you must, why not index: ?
Hmmm. I hadn't thought of that before, but I've certainly wanted to tell the path traverser whether to use attribute, index, or key access on several occasions (using 'items' as a dictionary key bites me regularly). This suggests the following prefixes:
'key:' -- use item access with the prefixed string. 'index:' -- use item access with the prefixed integer. 'attr:' -- use attribute access with the prefixed string.
I agree, "index:" is better. I had a mental block that made me think of only "item:", which would be ambiguous.
