My thought on the code generator was to have the C++ parser write the
parse tree out to some xml file that could then be read by a code
generator written in python.  Then the C++ parser could possibly be
replaced with something else and the generator could be more quickly
improved since it's now implemented in python.  Changing it would
still require C++ knowledge, though, because it's emitting C++ code.

Is there anyone on this list that knows enough about the bug tracker
to help people learn how to use it effectively?  I think I gave up
when I tried to close one of the bugs I reported and couldn't figure
out how to do it.  Or should we be looking for another tracker?
