Parser Infrastructure for Emacsen

The Semantic Bovinator's goal is to provide an intermediate API for authors of language agnostic tools who want to deal with languages in a generic way. It also provides a simple way for Mode Authors, who are experts in their language, to provide a parser for those tool authors, without knowing anything about those tools.

The Semantic Bovinator is made up of these important pieces:

 - lexer: Converts a language into a token stream
 - parser: Converts a token stream into a stream of nonterminals
   defined by the language.
 - parser-generator: Converts a language definition into a table
   usable by the parser. (Written using the Semantic Bovinator)
 - Language Definitions: Parsers already existing for the parser
   generator language (Bovine Normal Form), Emacs Lisp, and C.
 - speedbar browser: Code for browsing a generated nonterminal list
   with Speedbar.
 - Documentation generator: Identifies inline documentation in source
   code, and can convert it to texinfo.  It can also create inline

Semantic is now a part of CEDET (Collection of Emacs Development Environment Tools).
