"Working in the lab". Tested with a few samples. Not bundled with last v3
release. Maybe next.

V3 is still in development and is *still* changing. It's bleeding edge stuff
so, you will need to do testing with your actual grammars to determine if
using V3 rather than V2 is for you.

Can't comment on AntlrWorks beyond saying that it would eventually support
"remotely" debugging non-Java Lexers/Parsers/TreeParsers via over some IPC
