If, however, you want the (apparently, no personal opinion on this yet) better streaming, and if you have use fo the FFI stuff, then this may be a price worth paying. Clearly the PEGParser stuff seems a bit more expansive and perhaps more up to date than the SmaCC package.

Well, you can install only what you need from Xtreams (without Metacello, 
stuff that depends on FFI, like Xtream-Xtras, or dependencies like 

Installer ss
 	project: 'Xtreams';
 	addPackage: 'Xtreams-Support';
 	addPackage: 'Xtreams-Core';
 	addPackage: 'Xtreams-Terminals';
 	addPackage: 'Xtreams-TerminalsFileDirectory';
 	addPackage: 'Xtreams-Transforms';
 	addPackage: 'Xtreams-Substreams';
 	addPackage: 'Xtreams-Parsing';
