Thanks to all who replied.  I apologize that my responses were disjoint - my spam checker delayed a couple of the messages until this morning.

To those who suggested literal convertibles, I believe Stephen is correct in that it is insufficient to accomplish the semantics that I want with the syntax I had hoped for.  It is about more than just initialization.  I'll probably just use ":=" as the assignment operator.  Not optimal, but it works.
