Hi, Jurko.

I've caught important principle in bjam language - if you construct more
complex expression that simple string literal, it is better to put it into
temporal variable. However, my personal feeling is that in this particular
case it is not so difficult to extend existent functionality of bjam
lexer/parser in order to support "anonymous" bjam lists evaluation in

Not having much time right now to dive into bjam's engine, I could add this
language feature later on if you kindly point me the place in source code
where I should advance.

Kind regards,
Dima Kinoshenko
