For reference, the official documentation on refers to 
them as "compile-time sequences" [1] or "AliasSeqs" [2].

Also, as long as we're bikeshedding, my vote for the title would 
be something like "String Syntax for Compile-Time Sequences", so 
that there's no potential for confusion between "String (Sequence 
Literals)" and "(String Sequence) Literals".
