Not as far as I know. I toyed with an idea of writing a parser in Perl
(using the fancy Marpa::R2 module) for doing something like this, but it
never found the light of day.

This could've been useful for more than just syntax checking. It could
also be useful for doing syntax highlighting and code-completion in editors.

Michael: Is the script parser well factored out, or is it _everywhere_?
I'm assuming it doesn't compile down to a proper AST, does it?
