That one doesn't compile for me. On line 402:
no instance of overloaded function "boost::spirit::qi::parse" matches
the argument list
(and the same on all the similar lines)
and indeed I see can't see an appropriate overload in the spirit headers
(in boost trunk), but it's hard to be sure since there are so many
functions called parse!
