It's like the ANY function, so I don't know that I'd say it "totally
breaks" normal usage. Isn't OR often optimized to work this way; i.e.
I think the most important thing, barring actual "bugs" in PARSE's
design is documenting how these things work so grammars can be designed
correctly (e.g. longest match first; greedy grammars? :).
