It'd be cool if this worked with curly brace syntax. You could read in (and write) a file that looked like this:

  {'id 3 
   'c {
      'name "james c clarke" 
      'age 23 
      'addr "1724 Cox Ave. NY, NY 90210"
     }
  }
I think it'd make reading and writing a much better experience.[1]

EDIT: I guess this would be called "table literals"?
