Sorry, it's just too late to break the review up into two now. If I had
demanded that, I think there would have been a great chance that Marcin
wouldn't submit anything.

If you think the tree is great, but the parsers suck, then just vote no,
or (preferably) say what's wrong with them: is the interface? is it the
implementation? is it correctness? is it speed?
