Can you help me understand why Racket's reader couldn't be extended to do this? It seems very extensible [1]. I've already gotten good mileage out of hacking it with aw's extend-readtable [2]. (Come to think of it, I should continue playing around with this to try and implement the JavaScript-style dot operator.)

I also wonder if rntz's arcc might be useful here [3]. (I haven't tried it yet.)
