One of the cool things about LPEG is that, after you get all excited
by how easy it is to write parsers, you then discover that it's _also_
gut-churningly fast... (and that's true even if you're doing tons of
Lua callbacks, especially if you're using LuaJIT)

brought about by rulers mostly knaves, and soldiers mostly fools.
