Nearly so.

I would think that switching parsing technologies would encourage creation
of a better AST interface layer which further my goal of getting to the
AST's for other purposes.  I also think that exposing the AST layer would
further your goal of switching parser technology by allowing outsiders to
contribute parsers that you might ultimately like better.

So I do see a linkage and do support switching.

+1 to switching parsers (and thus making switching easier)
