Is it really a good idea for octal numbers to allow capital-O, e.g. 0O755?

var n = 0O755;
Is this something anyone wants to read? I certainly don't! Allowing only lowercase 'o' in octal literal syntax is inconsistent with 'x' and 'b', but on balance I think that's probably preferable to admitting this monstrosity. :-) (Which isn't to say I care strongly enough to spend a whole bunch of time arguing the point, only enough to raise it as a concern and see if others agree.)
