I just had a look at YAPPS, and it seems suitable. It is only LL(1),
but I think that should be sufficient for XPath. It does tokenization
with re (if asked); in Python 2.0, that will be sre, which should be
capable of tokenizing Unicode strings as well. In any case, it is 100%
pure Python, which should simplify porting.

I don't know enough of 4XPath to rewrite it; I'm certainly willing to
help with reformulating the grammar and fixing bugs in YAPPS if
somebody else starts porting to it.
