The argument for percent! being useful in VID makes me think......ouch! :)
1) VID is a dialect, so adding support for ##% syntax isn't the same as
adding a percent! datatype. I don't have a problem extending VID's syntax in
that way except that...
2) Adding that ability opens up a whole can of worms related to pair! values
which don't support even decimal components at this time, only integers.
