Haven't chimed in about this subject.. But I'm not fond of using Python
as the description language. Sorry, but it's just not suited for the
job. I'd rather keep something like the Jam syntax, but integrated with
Python. I.e. writing the parser in Python would be fine. But it's just
that I think Python is the wrong tool for writing declarations.
