I started out using attoparsec, but I really needed the ability to query
source position, which attoparsec doesn't provide. I also added a way
to peek at the character *before* the current position (peekLastChar),
which simplified some of my parsers. Otherwise it's very similar to
attoparsec, with similar performance.
