Actually, what I'm really after is just a way of parsing regular textual
input into a regular lisp structure. I feel like I'm continually
shooting myself in the foot with regular expressions, and wanted
something a little "stricter". I really like how grammars are defined in
the Bovinator's *.by files -- that feels like the right approach -- but
it may also be bringing in a bunch of of unneeded complexity: I don't
need tags or completion or anything.

Are there any lighter-weight approaches to this problem?

Thanks,
Eric
