Oh, yeah, don't mess with the parser. You shouldn't have to touch that at
all. ALL information in the IDL is represented in the symbol tree. If you
find something wrong with the parser send me a mail. AFAIK it's golden.
It's non-validating ball of speghetti but the symbol tree it generates
should be perfect and that's what really matters.

Always make sure you're using the latest version of idlc. The 0.4 release
really changed in particular. Things are very fluid right now.
