What is the racket team's stance on core support for vectors and
hashes, in terms of syntax for literals and making containers act as
functions of their keys? The latter, in particular, would be a huge
win, though it would also be a pretty large change to the language -
I'm interested in what people feel the pros and cons of having it
included would be, independent of the implementation difficulty.
