No need to apologize, I was using your discount egg up until a few days
ago with great success! However, I got into a situation where I needed
to fiddle a bit with the parse result which, after a bit of improper
hacking, lead me to do it the proper way. Also, this was a good excuse
for playing with parser combinators ;-)

Well, it's still a lot fater than Lowdown so I wouldn't discard it just
