I should probably clarify this.  `All or nothing Yacc support' does not 
and would not accurately describe Bison's behavior.  That is, Bison lets 
you do many non-Yacc things (such as %glr-parser) when you specify --yacc.  
I don't mean to express any opinions on that behavior.

I simply mean to agree that we should not feel obligated to support 
fine-grained selection of Yacc features (specifically, --yacc suboptions) 
where it would produce more work for us and where it's probably not needed
