Wrong, exampel of () in data:


About the complexity. It only "looks" complex. But from the
machine point of view it's very simple to parse.
Note that the strong advantage of this isn't the quoting,
you can quote anyway in 1000 different ways. The advantage
is that data is structured and parsing does not rely on
spaces or newlines, but just on ().
With this syntax you can express data as complex and structured
as you want but the parsing is still simple.
