that would be fine with me, in any case.

I like ${hex:<hex>}, because it looks like a function and we can use the
same syntax for other string expansions, too.

I want to note that a syntax mix-up can be flagged at upload time, so I
don't think it's a big problem in practice.

this is not entirely correct, a typo like ${hex.ff} can only be flagged
if "variables" is in use, otherwise it will be used verbatim.

This particular typo will indeed be used verbatim, whereas ${hex:fg} can
be recognised.
