That's exactly reason why I let it go for a while because I was so
sure that somebody would be working on it :-)

BTW, I see you've made a few design decisions about how to build a
proto compiler.

Did you think it was going to be easier to write a parser in Erlang
rather than re-target the C++ compiler for Erlang?

Also, I see you've decide against using a parser generator - was there
a reason why?
