For me, this is crucial. A future version of Spark would probably put
its parse annotations in the parens. Various type checking systems would
probably do the same:

    def t_whitespace(self, s)[
		grammar(r' \s+'), 

This is going to happen so we need to be confident that we like this use
of the syntax. I've been waiting for something like this for a while.
