I depends on how you define the Parser concept, of course. It could return an
AST,or perhaps an argument*, where argument is a class that can contain any
argument that will be passed to the user. The interface between the CLA
parser and other arbitrary parsers need not equal the interface between the
user and the CLA parser.
