Unfortunately, it looks like almost no implementation currently exists. 
Bison parses --no-parser (but not %no-parser despite being documented) and 
forgets it.  I just had a look in TODO.  It looks like Akim was also 
wondering whether we needed to keep --no-parser.

Would an XML encoding of the .output file suffice for your purposes?  
I've seen many discussions expressing a desire for that implementation.
