Yes and no...  SableCC 2 was built using the dead SableCC 1.  A
student of mine has been working on SableCC last Summer.  He has fixed
SableCC 2 to use a SableCC 2 front-end; this did require some work.

I have just submitted my Ph.D. thesis a little over a week ago.  In
the upcoming days, I will start committing some of his work, including
the new front-end.


PS: I will also start diggin through the newer stuff that was added in
the experimental version (I hadn't have time until now to do so).
