Not understanding the differences between bnf and ebnf, I raced off to
google and found this article:

Aha -- now I see why you want to use ebnf instead of bnf -- you get each
definition down to a single line.  Given the index/cross reference
available in the parser.output file, it may be possible to automatically
generate an ebnf automatically.  I'll put it in the hopper to think
about, but won't promise to do anything about it.
