What about using the C parser for this? The Spirit version was directly
derived from a YACC/LEX based grammar, which is still available from the
sites mentioned in the starting comment of the sample. SO we could
compare nearly equivalent grammars implemented with two different
technologies. Moreover I think, that it should be possible to change
this grammar to use subrules (if the compilers do not reach some magical
