And maybe execute it too? Since we have a good jit available, perhaps it would even make it run decently.

Do you mean the altSyntax that was integrated into browsers? That
survived through at least Squeak 3.8. I thought it was a nice thing
to have because it was a way to help a new user to grok that Smalltalk
is not about syntax, it's all about the messages and objects.
