Did this patch include a change to the documentation ?
(I don't know if Wei trimmed the patch.)

It introduces a new syntax.  The new syntax is rather exciting.  Is it
used anywhere else ?  What do other tools do ?

Good question.

Also, I have some comments about the implementation:

This patch seems to involve a lot of duplication of existing code.
I'm afraid I'll have to ask you to integrate it into the existing
code, factoring out common functionality as necessary.

The mixture of parsing with regexps and strtok was less than ideal to
start with, but it becomes worse with the new syntax complexity.  If
this syntax is really the one we want, I'd suggest looking again at
the possibility of using flex for part of it.  flex allows the syntax
to be described using an interleaved mixture of regexps and C code.
