Hello Ruud,
Peter Weighill has also writen some QBASIC conversion utilities (back in
1994, available on the net CBM2IBM and IBM2CBM) and these use the {} method
you suggest. 

The {} method is perhaps the easiest to standardise to with the option of
expressing things as both {code} and {function}, eg {28} is equivalent to

any thoughts?
