Ah, ok. It was especially the 'BibTex fashion' that got me curious.  
Now i know what you mean by 'fashion'. I think. There is no nesting  
in BibTeX for what i know of though.

All that blah blah said i think what your write about the structured- 
ness is a good thing, as it allows for a (BibTeX kinda) way of  
handling/doing multi diminutional arrays even with strings as keys.

- Which in a PHP fashion could be like:

Instruments[bass][tb303][cutoff] = 10
Instruments[bass][tb303][cf] = 440
Instruments[drumm] = drummset1

Patterns[p1] = "1 0 0 0 1 0 0 1"
Patterns[p2] = "0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0"

Score[bass] = p1
Score[drum] = p2

Though the idea is the same, the Poor Mans SC is properly more human  
readable. Hope you post your example somewhere when you get to it.

Best, Steffen
