All options are still on the table. It is important to closely align the
solution to the goal of making itself available for *internal use* in the
stdlib itself. Having a parser library in the stdlib for *general use* is
not an explicit goal that I am aiming for, just as pgen2 was not intended
that way. Neither should that deter one from being considered.
