I have written a parser for my web server that uses continuations to
resume parsing. It's not really Parsec like anymore though. It only
parses LL(1) grammars as that's all I need to parse HTTP. I haven't
released a first version of my server yet, indeed most of the code is
on this laptop and not in the Git repo [1], but if you would like to
steal some ideas feel free.
