You are right. GLOBAL's parser is insufficient yet.

However, I have no reserve force to rewrite the parsers. Instead, I would
rather entrust it to outside projects.

Since GLOBAL has plug-in parser mechanism now, everyone can write plug-in
parsers and distribute them. Plug-in parser is a shared library, and is loaded
into GLOBAL dynamically without rewriting GLOBAL itself.

If you try to write GLOBAL's parser, it will become a big help to GLOBAL
project.  If it is achieved, I will link the site with pleasure.

I saw it. It's a fine project.
Thank you for informing it.
