This doesn't seem like an appropriate addition to bash, in my opinion.
Where do you draw the line?  Should bash also parse XML?  Windows .INI
files?  Comma-separated-value text files with quotes around elements
that contain commas?  Apache-style log files with quotes around fields
that contain spaces?

In my opinion, all of those things are inappropriate to add to bash.
