For a potential new contributor possibly, but I doubt that's true for
most existing Wine contributors. My personal experience is that most
people I know that use or used ANTLR are Java developers rather than C
developers though. I did use ANTLR v2.x myself in the past (I wrote
some Java too, hope it doesn't show too much ;)), although more in a
maintenance kind of way. Seemed to work well enough, although I don't
remember it having compelling features over bison/yacc.
