We're working to make any parsers for Boost model the same set of concepts,
so that even if several parsers are available, they are essentially
interchangeable. The benefit of such an approach is that specialized parsers
can be faster, produce better error messages, or be easier to use for some
tasks (context-free grammars are too general and sometimes unwieldy for
certain tasks).
