Seems that it already understands quoted strings to some degree...
>> a: [aa [aaa 1 bbb 2] "bb" [ccc 1 ddd 2] ]
== [aa [aaa 1 bbb 2] "bb" [ccc 1 ddd 2]]
>> p: to-path [a "bb"]
== [ccc 1 ddd 2]

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is
limited. Imagination encircles the world.
