I remember now.  It came in two parts.  The first part, you and I worked on
documenting the commands in BNF notation (back in 2016).  That work is what
got carried across to fvwm.

Then you created some experimental code to start to clean things up.

That work was done in the mvwm repository [1], and the two branches you'll
want to look at are:

* dv/new-parser


* dv/new-parser-2


You could add mvwm as a git-remote in the fvwm3 repository and try and
cherry-pick/rebase the relevant commits.   But I suspect neither branches will
have any common ancestry with the master branch, so that might not work as
well.  But you could solve that through using grafts if you really wanted to.

I can't really remember where we got to with that work either -- I'm hoping
this trip down memory lane might jog your memory more than it has mine.  ;)
