This is a minor annoyance, but might want to go on a low-priority bug list somewhere.

It seems silly that I can write #(..., [LITERAL_foo], ...) but not #(..., "foo", ...) . I can't think of any syntactic reason why this should not be straightforwardly acceptable to the parser, and it is considerably more readable.

Hi Jonathan...I use this a lot when building tree grammars. Are you sure it doesn't work? Sounds like it isn't getting the appropriate vocab imported from your parser/lexer duo.
