I see four areas where ANTLR 3 will make a difference--performance, industrial-strength tree support, output templates, and (if we can
get there) workbench support for visual editing and refactoring. The output templates and workbench support are also very high impact
items. I figure that the tree support knocks off about 30% of current development overhead, output templates will account for another
30%, and the workbench might account for another 30%. "Comes the revolution, comes the revolution".
