(I'm not sure if this is supposed to be sarcastic or not.)
It would be a large grammar. The library acts like a programming
language, but it isn't technically a programming language--which gives
it a lot more inconsistencies and special cases than a proper language.
(After all, it is built atop Cpp which drastically limits its
abilities.) However, I suppose it is possible to produce a grammar.
