I think you're giving up way too easily.  My claim is that learning to
make a monadic parser would actually be *faster* than implementing it
this way, and you'll be a better programmer at the end of it.

There's a great functional pearl on this at
http://www.cs.nott.ac.uk/~gmh/bib.html#pearl ; you do yourself a
disservice if you don't read it.  It's only 7 pages!
