boost.proto is _not_ about parsing, it's about creating EDSLs based on
Templates. boost.spirit is implemented with proto, and a EDSL for describing
grammars in a EBNF-style.
Another example of an EDSL built on proto is boost.xpressive which is a regular
expression EDSL. boost.regex, as the name says is also about regexes.

I'd personally go for spirit.
