For the longer run it might help people like me to give useful feedback if your longer term objectives are slightly clearer than right now. If you want to contribute to the field of parsing and parser generators (or even further, the field of compilers), then "not being sure it would work exactly" should just be the trigger to tackle the problem. That is basically what research, whether professional or hobby, is all about. If in the end it does not work, then you probably
understand why it does not work, which could help you and - if you document your work - others to solve - or at least address - that and related problems.

If - on the other hand - you just want to write code, then it might be helpful to look around and notice that there are other fields where you can hobby a little.

While writing compiler like stuff is fun - I did it long time ago for a long time with self-developed tools as parser- and codegenerator- and other tool-generators- one of the things is
that - unless you write compiler stuff for which there is a users group - it is nicer to write programs/systems - as hobby - for which there is a user base so that you can get feed back.


For the short term, I would agree with some others by suggesting to empty your head (do not take this literal), and do for some weeks something completely different, painting the house, fixing things that wait far too long to be repaired, go to china for a visit, go ...
