What about {$x}? Or is it too close to a typo for a regular property?

way too confusing, IMHO.  And departs significant from our "pattern"
which seems to be 
identifier type marker, open curly brace, identifier, close curly brace

The more I look at this, the clearer my clear choice becomes for @{x}.
It maintains the ant "pattern" of identifier naming while being quite
significantly different in an important way so that visual confusion
will be unlikely, even when the script writer is tired :-)
