Nope...i'm just working on the engine (throwaway prototype) at the 
moment, but this has led me to believe I can do all sorts of fancy 
tricks later if I simply serialize the grammar/lookahead info (like -g 
option) into the output parser so it's available.  The degenerate case 
might be that I don't generate the parser, just the grammar/lookahead 
info and then you can intepret it. :)
