Or how about
a := 1 to: $B!g(B.
If you add the Unicode symbol for infinity as a global variable, it seems to
work okay. You just need to choose a font which has that symbol.
Alternatively, you could be boring and use a name like "Infinity".
Now, the implementation would be most interesting :-). You could go a bit
further and make infinity a valid number to use in code.
