Parse can now handle paths. Currently refinements are literal (that is
-- parse [/local] [/local] -- holds), so I don't see any reason they
couldn't technically be used in the dialect. Whether they should or
not is another matter...
Also, if the feature was implemented, I'd be in favour of 'first-of --
eg. [first-of [rule-1 | rule-2]] -- seems a little more descriptive
than 'first or 'match.
