Hi Tony,

For what it is worth: I have implemented a parser for WikiCreole using
Neotoma and it works quite fine. Not sure if that fits your notion of large,
though ;-)

This was with Neotoma 1.1 and right now I am just dying to upgrade to 1.3
and throw out a bunch of code that really has to be inline transformations.

Cheers,
Torben
