It should probably check we're not gonna call the prefix-as-posfix before giving up entirely and throwing:

19:54 | Zoffix | m: say 42.:<->
-- | -- | --
19:54 | camelia | rakudo-moar a847abe52: OUTPUT: «=== SORRY!===  Error while compiling <tmp>␤Decimal point must be followed by digit␤at <tmp>:1␤------> say 42. ⏏ :<-> ␤»

19:54 | Zoffix | m: say (42).:<->
19:54 | camelia | rakudo-moar a847abe52: OUTPUT: «-42␤»

Allow prefix calls with .:< ... > on integer literals
Fix Github #2094. Before this commit, '42.:<->' would error because the
check which prevented integers ending with fullstops was overly
aggressive: any time an integer was followed by '.:', an error would be
generated. With this commit, an integer followed by '.:' will only error
if the next thing after it is not '<' then a prefix operator then '>'

Add support for all coloncircumfix in the form 42.:<->
Before only `42.:<->` was permitted. This commit weakens numbers-may-not-end-with-decimal error checking to support `42.:<<->>`, `42.:['-']`, etc to bring it inline with `(42).:['-']`, `(42).:['-']`, etc working. These are the requested changes that AlexDaniel made with regard to my pull request to fix GitHub #2094.
