All good questions. But if there's anything thats obvious is that
ASF tools and goodies have a tendency to become used in a widespread
fashion. Certainly having such a parser available may be useful for
various 3rd party modules to use? Maybe the existing code could be
further extended in other ways? I'm willing to say at this stage,
let's take a look.
