It looks to me like the confusion in that SO post is because Javascript does something sneaky in order to support several syntaxes that mean the same thing. Tcl has no syntax. Braces aren't used to delimit blocks and denote dictionaries. They're just used as an escaping mechanism, period. Once you know the language, it is always clear how the interpreter will treat your data.

The brace ambiguity only covers some of the issues they discuss. And there are many more elsewhere on the internet..
