The parser is located at
https://hg.mozilla.org/users/khuey_mozilla.com/webidl-parser/.  We're using
it in Gecko with a code generator that we've written to generate C++ glue
code for our new DOM bindings.  This is all very much a work in progress,
and the parser needs a fair amount of cleanup (the spec changed under me
multiple times as I was working on it, so I have some support for things
that are gone e.g. modules).
