In a nutshell, yes. I will just use it when I properly learn it. I've
only done some mild Spirit semantic actions with it so far. Other team
members who don't follow Boost at all (it's left to me here pretty
much) will also get confused when they see Spirit headers being
included and no apparent parsing taking place. With it not being a
top-level library, they can't quickly get documentation on it either.
I know where to dig to get it.
