There was another port of the narcissus parser, the problem being that  
the license is incompatible with the mit license. Another idea is that  
the webkit parser is made using byson, if we had a yacc or something  
like that it would be trivial to port, and I think the license is more  
permissive (or I just forgot about it and it is completely  
incompatible with the mit license).
