I just replaced the internal parser of PropertyTree (the old one was a
Spirit.Classic parser) with a hand-written streaming parser (push, while
yours appears to be pull) too. It's on the develop branch. The real
problem is a sensible way to mark a tree as partial. Who wants to work
with such a structure? In such cases, I'm pretty sure it would be
simpler to use the streaming interface directly.
