As Wave is a preprocessor conforming to the C++ Standard this is not
But you can define your macro like

    #define x(y) llList2String(x,y)

if that's an option.

OTOH, Wave is open source, so you should be able to find the corresponding
code to add your syntax. Do you want _all_ macros to be defined using the []
syntax or is this something you want to have additionally to the 'normal'
function style syntax?
