Actually, my thought was to use [*] as a prefixed modifier for impl and
ejec stops. Sorry for being unclear.
My first impulse was to use ["] for impls and ejecs, but unfortunately
there was one character already blocked: ["c], which you used for
Polnish curly-ended c. However, the [*] versions of all the necessary
stops are unused so far, so it would work with no further rearrangements.
