A Verilog parser has been written using pyparsing at least once before, 
so I imagine that it shouldn't be too difficult to do so again. Of 
course, if you just need *a* Verilog parser, not necessarily one written 
by you, you could just email the guy who wrote it and ask him for a 
copy. Grep

for "Verilog".
