Remember that bash's grammar is derived from the specification of the
POSIX shell 
Also, any addition to the bash grammar should be backwards compatible
(or enabled with a shopt, disabled by default), to avoid breaking
already working scripts.

Due to the complexity of the above limitations, I'd just use perl or
another language. It's not worth the effort. So don't feel discouraged
if you send patches and these are rejected.
