Config::Grammar has gained a lot of new functionality with Smokeping 2.0,
which is the main reason I thought about having it packaged. It is now
much more strict about parsing the config file, and gives sensible
error messages when it can.

But I guess you're right - with only one package depending on it,
there's not much point after all.

suddenly becomes more popular and somebody wants it in Debian :)
