Tree-sitter is a massive overkill when you need to parse something just
slightly more complex than can be done via regexps.

Tree-sitter requires a whole separate .so file with compiled parser +
buffer setup.

Bovine is a bit easier to use (you can, at least, define grammar in
Elisp), but you also need to setup parser in a separate buffer with
existing documentation being even more limited compared to peg.el.
