Well, at least Alexandre as well, and I could imagine distributions
wanting to generate those files themselves as well.

IIRC ANTLR also includes its own IDE/editor, although it's probably
not required to use that. It seems to me like it would be less trouble
to either use bison/yacc or write something by hand,  like most of the
other parsers in Wine. The more interesting problem is of course
finding someone to work on it in the first place.
