[antlr-interest] Postscript parsing

I was wondering if anyone had any views on the suitability or
otherwise of ANTLR for parsing Postscript. There was a discussion here
a few years back about this general area, and there's Mr Parr's lab
exercise on the site. However,  I'm wondering if it really makes sense
to use a recursive descent parser to handle a stack-based interpreted
language, as opposed to hand-crafting the lexer and interpreter. Any
views gratefully received.
