NLP/NER is as high a priority to me as the OCR stuff..we have a whole meta 
for doing NER/NLP with NERRecogniser and really cool Tensorflow and other stuff.
Hoping 2.0 can help solve this! ☺

    I think the big one we need to crack is allowing multiple parsers to run 
    against a file. OCR is probably the most critical of these from the 
    modularisation perspective, with all those nasty interlinkings between the 
    parsers to allow the manual delegation. If we can crack the problem of 
    multiple parsers, those proxy issues should go away (or at least get 
    As a bonus, it ought to also improve things for error cases (fallback 
    parsers etc), but for your needs, the simplification for "ocr + image 
    metadata" is likely your biggest win!
    (I think it might also let us tidy up some of the enhancement parsers too, 
    like how the NLP stuff fits into the parsing framework)
