Saving 2 characters will save you 250ms assuming you are a decent

I'll trade 250ms of typing for clarity any day.

After a year of using `const`, I got used to it, but even with that I often
feel losing time using it, with those 2 additional chars. It's really

It's also really close to *cons*ole(.log,...), annoying with auto-completers

Thing are probably frozen at this time, but `cst`, `ref`, `val` would have
been interesting
