I asked the question because there are a bunch of implementations and if
there was a great attraction to the current syntax beyond {foo} then I wanted
to know that. From what I can tell from the ensuing conversation there is a need
for more complex capabilities beyond {foo}, but no one is in love with
the current
syntax. That's good news to me because I prefer your proposed system.

I can update the current draft to your proposal, or you can generate
a draft yourself if you think that will go faster.
