The sexpr modules use are called pretty modules.  Pretty refers *only to modules* in this

Pretty modules are already importable in the module editor, one at a time.  Just import
something that you know to be in pretty format.  Typically it will have *.kicad_mod file
extension.  You can also export to pretty format and that module should be given a
*.kicad_mod file extension.  Already there, for months.

When you gather a bunch of them under a directory named *.pretty, then this constitutes a
pretty library.  These will be readable and writable when the fp lib table work is done.
