Rapid initialization of typed arrays

Like Javascript, for example:

Dim daysOfWeek() as String

daysOfWeek = [ "Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"]


Dim coolNumbers() as Double

coolNumbers = [ 0, PI, 42, 666, 6174 ]

I'm aware that we can already do something like...

daysOfWeek = Split("Sunday,Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday",",")

... but this only ever returns an Array of Strings. It would be nice to have arrays of other datatypes

    I'd like to add a related wish -- Enhance the Dim statement by allowing to specify an initial value, like for example in Visual Basic:

    Dim quantity As Integer = 10
