I lobbied in favor of PEP 269 earlier, because it is mostly exposing
functionality that already exists but is difficult to reuse.  That
seems like a good thing even if some people want to use other parser

I've only seen pgen used for one application, and that one application
has been modestly successfuly.  So a language can do worse than
starting with pgen.
