I haven't constructed parsers yet, that were too complex for the
compilers I've been testing with, thus I don't know the limits yet.


Parsers built with Spirit parse at runtime, while parsers built with
Metaparse parse at compile-time and can produce things that can affect
the compilation process. I've added this to the documentation
(index.html). I can't see how it could be built on top of Spirit.
