So you don't use it together with a tool to process it?
IOW you opted to use that particular syntax but could have used "any other"?

Have you used the "; comment ... ;" commenting style?

Any plan to add support for the syntax supported by ebnf2ps, or the
syntax used in RFCs in the short term?  That would make it a lot more
useful, I think.

Also, if you need help adding SMIE support to it, feel free to ask.
It should be pretty easy to get something going.
