Thanks for all the pointers. This is very useful.

On parsers: yes, LL/LR theory and table-based parsers have been
developed for a reason and it's no easy decision to throw them out.
Still, even Parsec kind of computes the FIRST sets?

And - I positively hate preprocessors.
I really want my domain specific languages embedded
because I want to use Haskell's types, functions, modules etc.
for the domain specific objects (parsers, AST walkers, etc.)

Best regards, J.W.
