Interesting! If I am reading it correcty, it is Event generating parser over
the stream.

I have been tempted to use such approach to decode AMQP data from network
stream - describe the amqp codec as grammar, put the resulting parser to
chew data stream and handle generated events down the road. Always wanted to
ask Lukas if PettitParser could be used in such scenario.

I think we it would be great if we could have event/actor based eco system
for Pharo. Evented framework with interface to async I/O libs, http, and
other protocols. And if we could stick event generating parser into that ...

I am afraid it is a _lot_ of work, but it gets me envy that ruby, python and
even *sigh* java folks have that for years.
