I don't see problems for a parser here. When it detects a [, it knows that
it has to look for a ]. You can both write the block in one line or in the
next line - even not indented as the parser knows that there's still
something missing. Now if the block contains more than one statement, you
have to insert new lines.
A statement like
true ifTrue: [false]
would be possible as for example
