I see.  I think it's better for us to merge just the generated Lisp
grammar files, leaving the grammar development for upstream.  It's an
awful lot of infrastructure to pull in, considering that CEDET
development won't be carried out in our repository anyway.

Do you know if the bovine and wisent parsers are mutually replacable?
For instance, the default parser seems to be bovine; would it be a big
deal if we included just the bovine parser?
