  Description     : fastest pure-Python PEG parser I could muster

 Parsimonious aims to be the fastest arbitrary-lookahead parser written
 in pure Python—and the most usable. It's based on parsing expression
 grammars (PEGs), which means you feed it a simplified sort of EBNF
 notation. Parsimonious was designed to undergird a MediaWiki parser
 that wouldn't take 5 seconds or a GB of RAM to do one page, but it's
 applicable to all sorts of languages.
 The goals of Parsimonious are:
  * Speed
  * Frugal RAM use
  * Minimalistic, understandable, idiomatic Python code
  * Readable grammars
  * Extensible grammars
  * Complete test coverage
  * Separation of concerns. Some Python parsing kits mix recognition
    with instructions about how to turn the resulting tree into some
    kind of other representation. This is limiting when you want to do
    several different things with a tree: for example, render wiki
    markup to HTML or to text.
  * Good error reporting. I want the parser to work with me as I develop
    a grammar.
