I’ve decided to give the Antlr4 task another go.
I had some major trouble getting a reasonable development setup (even with IntelliJ), but
now it seems I can actually get the ball rolling with a reasonable unit test turnaround time
(again using Eclipse and a slightly patched Groovy-Eclipse compiler).

I guess the next milestone is to ensure that the parser derives the same AST’s as the Antlr2
parser, but before that there are some constructs I know aren’t behaving correctly.
