Yes, Spirit is independent of Phoenix. Semantic actions are just functors.
You can use STL, boost.lambda, bind.. etc... Phoenix is just a test-bed
for advanced FP in C++. Features such as local functions, local variables,
closures were original Phoenix innovations. Boost.Lambda has since acquired
these features (especially closures).
