Please can you apply it?

Nonetheless parsers written using some higher-level generator (bison,
or possibly another one which generates reentrant code) are easier to
write, read and debug, so they tend to be more robust. Not that I'm
saying that it would be needed for the preset file, but there are
other parts in ffmpeg where it could be useful (ffserver.conf parser
and the graphparser of libavfilter).
