I added a -plugin option to ANTLR itself (for 2.7.6 which Ter will be 
releasing soon), but it's only used for the XML plugin I wrote. The -
xmlSupport option added to the antlr ant task translates into a -plugin call 
for the xml plugin.

Behind the scenes, the -plugin is very specific to the xml support (other 
plugins would require big changes in ANTLR to work), and Ter just didn't want 
to have to support the XML code himself. He's currently working on ANTLR 3.0 
(which will require a new ant task) and doesn't have much time for ANTLR 2.x 
improvements.

The -debug option has always been there. I just added a link to my web site in 
the doc page (which is where ParseView lives) so people will know where to go 
to get it.

I could change the -xmlSupport option to -plugin, but because the xml support 
is the only plugin (and quite likely will forever be [for ANTLR 2.x]), it just 
makes the task harder to use.

So I'd like to ask to keep it this way. If you'd like me to remove the links 
in the doc page, I could.
