Here it is:

I quote:

in principle, you could
"merge" a table literal into an existing table very efficiently, if only we
could say it in the program. (If you're generating bytecode, then like I said
you don't need to do anything special.)

One possible syntax would be
	t<<{ ... }
but that requires a new token.

Other possibilities that do not require a new token are
	t#{ ... }
	t:{ ... }
