[Mediawiki-l] List of parsers for MediaWiki markup

Somebody was asking on IRC earlier about what parsers there are for
MediaWiki's brand of wikitext, other than the bits of the MediaWiki
code that do it (which I suggested would be pretty painful to seperate
from the rest of it).

As I thought about it, and looked around, I realised that there were
actually quite a few of these about, mostly in unfinished states, but
generally usable for simple tasks and/or as the basis for somebody
else's attempt. So, as an attempt to minimise duplication of effort, I
thought I'd make a list of what was out there.

This is therefore both an announcement that I've started the list, and
an invitation for anyone who knows of something I've missed/got wrong
to add it in/correct it. I hope this proves useful for someone

The list is at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Alternative_parsers
