I would like to move forward with this.

Clear to-dos:

1. document things to be improved or implemented (including bugs)
2. document the new syntax
3. write tests
4. improve or implement the items from (1)

I have listed those in the order in which I feel comfortable doing work.

What kind of tests do we want for this feature?  It will be quite easy to do a
lot of this testing with string evals, assuming we're not concerned about
trying to treat this like a very low-level test which, in some ways, it would
be.

Who else wants to kick in? :)
