<- Well, some parsers such as the C ones: Jason Diamonds' Repat and

I'm finding this a bit weird - why should a (Java) parser be particularly
vulnerable to leaks? Surely it's only going to be doing a pretty simple
operation a lot of times.

Nope, still don't get it. Is the end result the same? (I'm looking for neat
ways of pulling out chunks of the DMOZ tree, though I hadn't really got p|n
in mind).
