Just to remind everyone that the spirit formal review is due to end Monday

> The framework can be downloaded from:
> Synopsis:
> ~~~~~~
> Spirit is an object oriented recursive descent parser generator framework
> implemented using template meta-programming techniques. Expression
> allow us to approximate the syntax of Extended Backus Normal Form (EBNF)
> completely in C++. Parser objects are composed through operator
> and the result is a backtracking LL(inf) parser that is capable of parsing
> rather ambiguous grammars.
> The Spirit framework enables a target grammar to be written exclusively in
> C++. Inline EBNF grammar specifications can mix freely with other C++ code
> and, thanks to the generative power of C++ templates, are immediately
> executable. In retrospect, conventional compiler-compilers or
> parser-generators have to perform an additional translation step from the
> source EBNF code to C or C++ code.
