Maybe a better question is - is it possible to adapt the semantic
parser generators (or others in emacs) to create the ".c" files for
use with libtreesitter?
The functionality of libtreesitter is probably useful independent of
the tool used to create the module it loads, as long as it satisfies
the functional requirements.  Would the treesitter authors be amenable
to establishing a documented ABI for that component so other
parser-generators could target it?
