Although seems similar, is not the same thing, isn't it?

But you comment brought me the idea to use the first '\' character as
a trigger that activates a "native built-in small/naive/simplistic"
metalua or token filter processor. So you may reduce any additional
costs to handle user defined syntactical extensions.

By the way, I liked '#', but it was already used in shebang.
