Layout Library (Eve)
Eve is broken up into two distinct pieces: the parser and the
engine. Note that both components exist completely independently of
each other, though they are built in a way that they bind together
easily. We will discuss both components in turn. There is also a
third component, referred to herein as the assemblage code, which is
the client-specified code that binds the parser to the engine.
Seems like a library plus some other significant parts.
