Not only parsing, but parsing into a buildable form and then executing 
the build. It is a fully functional build tool although it lacks some of 
the bells and whistles of nALFS.

Er, no. You've been misunderstanding the talk, seemingly. nALFS is the 
original tool that's still in use, created by Neven Has (hence the 'n').

The plans we are drawing up for the next tool are not going to be based 
on nALFS, they will as much as possible be re-designed from scratch. 
That's why the name 'alfs' was chosen instead of something like nALFS2
