Hi Javier,

That's a great project and I'm highly interested in it. I'm not experienced
in PetitParser so I won't be a lot of help, but I'll give it a try.

Maybe you already thought of this but what if you make your parser build
some simple C AST and then you make specific visitors for each kind of FFI?
