Octal-like integer literals

I had a look at moving them from deprecated to error, but druntime uses them 
extensively in the os headers.  I think we need a better solution than a 
template in the standard library - you shouldn't need a dependency on phobos 
to use them, and the compiler shouldn't directly reference anything in the 
standard library.
