I don't think any of the proposals so far go beyond LL(1).
However, some of them might require rethinking the traditional
form of interface between the tokeniser and the parser. For
example, instead of treating newlines as a separate token,
have a flag which says "this token occurred at the end of a
line", that the parser can take notice of or not depending
on the context.
