Sounds great! I'd appreciate contributions.  I only used the combinators 
from Jeff's library that were relevant to PEGs - ordered choice, 
sequences, some predicates, repetition, and terminals.  I must admit 
that despite how helpful the code was in the library, the coding 
conventions were not something that I cared for -- mostly the 
positioning of punctuation, spaces, and the camel-cased function names.

If you -- or anyone -- know some Makefile-fu, I'd especially like one.  
For the initial version, it was more expedient for me to use rake.
