the scary thing about #Plan9 is when in file formats it has stuff like:

file: refers to a file
some-special-string: does a special thing

and that just invites the problem of someone using some-special-string as a file name

pls, anyone who does #programming
do not ever do anything like this
keep your formal grammars unambiguous

if you do not, Ada Lovelace will come down from Programmer Heaven and smite you

@grainloom See also: Field separators (If your value separator can under any circumstances appear in your values you fucked up (Looking at you, CSV))

@elomatreb @grainloom look up hl7. Field separators defined per field and can be changed at any point in the file. Basically CSV that has eaten itself.
