For instance, this is valid Lua:

device "norba" {
   dev = 'ttyS2',
   baudrates = {19200,115200},
   IRQ = 4

It works because device can be defined as a function that takes a
string, and returns a function that receives a table - the call syntax
sugar makes this readable. (device() is a nice example of a useful
'curried' function in Lua)
