Yeah; currently, it assumes that you've got the whole structure.

I'm going to have to think about incremental parsing.

Anyone who wants a copy of the (current state of the) parser, ping me off-list.
I have to write some docs before it I make it generally available.

I'm quite happy to take suggestions.
