I've only had a cursory glance at Spirit, but I have a hard time seeing
how I could adapt it for non-parsing uses, such as message handling
where messages are filtered. In fact, I think there is a strong division
between event generation and state transitioning. In other words, the
state machine framework should be independent of how events are generated.

Would you agree?
