I had started on the new parser a couple weeks ago, but got sidetracked
by other things. I'll be getting back to it this week, but until it's
ready it wouldn't hurt for you to pick up Li's patches, and I'll make
any changes I need to in the new code.

What this patch does will be needed by the new code too, so it would be
good to have it, though it might get moved around. Patch 2 won't hurt
either, though everything in filter_parse() will probably change. And
patch 3 fixes a bug that needs to be fixed regardless...

Thanks,

Tom
