To me, the fact that this raises discussion on if this syntax should 
have other applications perhaps already justifies a "no" to your actual 
question: should this be allowed in a bugfix release.

I would think not just a small library tool but an actual language 
change warrants a bit more consideration and should not be introduced in 
a what is supposed to be a bugfix release. This is more than just a 
bugfix, it's a significant feature. Adding those without giving them 
proper consideration seems to be an excellent way to grow ugly warts on 
the language that will be very hard to plaster over later on.
