Just for the record, the Sun C++ compiler, which is based (as were a number
of commercial compilers) on the TauMetric frontend, uses recursive descent,
with a precedence modification when handling expressions.
The original Zortech C++, now Symantec C++, and the Borland C++ compiler use
approximately the same technique.
That is, as far as I can tell, just the easiest way to do it.
