It makes me sad to not support $foo. Would it be too confusing to only
support a subset of the identifiers in this form? FWIW, Dart does not
allow identifiers with $ in this form, and requires you to use ${
jqueryLikes$Signs } when you need "strange" identifiers.

On the other hand, CoffeeScript only allows #{ expr } so maybe it is
not so bad after all.
