I agree that it's important and useful for legacy conversion, but I'd be 
inclined to use something like OmniMark, where the issues of making the 
lexer and the parser work together have been put under the hood. 
Explicitly setting states is a good example of what you should not need 
to do if the two were as well integrated as one would like.
