It's a good excuse for now, but later I'll have to find another one.

For the most cost-effective spouse-approved storage, walmart sells a 6' case
that comes down to $30-35 at times.

I mentioned lex/yacc mainly because I thought that would be preferred by real
coders.  I'm just a hack, so my hack of a parser would probably look a lot
like early versions of obuild.  I suppose if a hack can cover most of the
popular patches and snippets, it wouldn't need to be modified.
