Right, I understand that. I was hoping there was such an
implementation using ANTLR since it looks like a fairly mature project.
I'm not sure how stable or mature Elsa is (but comments to clarify
that would be appreciated.). E.g., a quick scan of their Web page
shows the comment that they only have a partial type checker. It also
says their template instantiation is incomplete.
