new package: ply "Python Lex-Yacc".

> PLY is a Python-only implementation of the popular compiler construction
> tools lex and yacc. The implementation borrows ideas from a number of
> previous efforts; most notably John Aycock's SPARK toolkit. However, the
> overall flavor of the implementation is more closely modeled after the C
> version of lex and yacc. The other significant feature of PLY is that it
> provides extensive input validation and error reporting--much more so than
> other Python parsing tools.
