I don't get this. There is nothing to stop you from writing C++
semantic actions in either lex or yacc. Neither tool cares much about
what is inside the braces. The only trouble is that the memory
leak problem mentioned in another thread is even worse here, because
it's not just memory that is not freed, it's destructors that are
not called.
