Numbers don't lie indeed, but the full truth is yet to be found. I mean that
parsing only complex number won't give us full understanding of space
requirements. Other grammars need to be considered, and effect on space of
one new rule (very approximate, of cause), would be usefull. It will be great
if at least partial infromation of this kind is available before you submit
Spirit. (I'd like to note that I haven't used Spirit practically yet, but
still find it an interesting and possibly usefull tool. We only should know
the domain where it's appropriate).
