Yeah, unfortunately, there's no documentation on it.  There should 
be...  Brad's doing a reorg of the documentation now, so it will be 
easier to manage and integrate the stuff people write!  ;)

It's a cool system that Andrew Dalke developed, that does really fast 
parsing, automatic format detection, and makes it easier to write
