Is anyone out there working on a generic parser framework, along the lines of spirit or something similar?  I remember sprit was mentioned some time back in reference to parsing D (with lex, yacc, lalr parsers and the whole family being brought up as well).  Yet I cannot recall if anyone managed to port it or use it to good effect on D.

Thanks.

I wrote something sort of like Sprit in D awhile ago, though I used polymorphism instead of expression templates (as Spirit does), so it's probably a good deal slower.  It's part of Apropos now. (which you can find at <http://andy.tadan.us/d>)
