Do you imagine that user-defined literals allow this? Sorry, but they
don't, according to my reading of n3290 [lex.ext]. Only user defined
integer and floating point literals allow compile-time access to the
characters. Unless you're willing to write all strings in [0-9a-fA-F]
(in which case you'd certainly be happy with ASCII!) this doesn't help much.

If there's some other way to get compile-time access to characters more
neatly than in C++03, then please share it; I would like to know!
