there's a problem here if you have a project named 'lang' or 'bin'.
perhaps keys should be capitalized or initial capital, which are reserved.
however, that may not work in all locales.

in general, these files are for humans to read and maintain.
if we are to use key names, they should be easy to read.
in that case, i prefer 'language' over 'lang' and 'binary' over 'bin'.

perhaps 'runtime-system:parrot' or 'runtime:parrot' fit those constraints.
