Exceptional Parser Changes, posted on Tue Sep 21 22:37:57 2010
Posted by: Woom

The parser has been changed a bit, more specifically how "except" is handled.

"except" is now handled before comma, "and" and ampersand. This means that "a&b except c&d", which used to match "a and ( b except c ) and d" now matches "( a and b ) except ( c and d )".

Furthermore, matching with "except" will no longer fail if the excepted class doesn't exist. That is, rather than fail, "a except b" will match all of a if there are no b.

Have fun!
