You don't need to change the syntax to use the Lua parser for that.
With a metatable on the _ENV, you can have global variable reads
(__index) return the variable name, so that series is the same as
"series". This only works with valid Lua variable names, but that
covers a lot of ground and you can fall back to quotes for the rest.
