Hi, Edward,

I've written an article comparing using Parse::RecDescent, Parse::Yapp, 
Perl-byacc and just plain regex approach in writing a parser for Entrez 
Gene.  You can take a look at it at http://egparser.sourceforge.net/

I also think Parse::RecDescent is not widely used in Bioperl or 
Bioinfo.  Its performance is part of the reason why one might be wary of 
using it in Bioinfo to process a lot of data.
