It's actually quite simple. The parser cannot be built using an FSM because it is recursive descent.

It cannot be a repurposed PDA because it already is a PDA, and the stack is the call stack.

The only way to change that is to fundamentally change parsley
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
