FWIW, if maintainers prefer, this package could also justifiably be
named `pegleg`.  I stuck with the upstream tarball name for now.

Hi Josh,
it seems that PEG doesn't build fully from source, src/peg.peg-c is a
pre-generated file that's pretty much not human-readable. While
bootstrapping fully from source is not a hard requirement, sidestepping
it is usually reserved to highly-desirable packages. Could you take a
look at the possibility of generating src/peg.peg-c during build?

Meanwhile, I have fixed up the description a bit (texinfo markup,
grammar):

    (description "@command{peg} and @command{leg} are tools for generating
recursive-descent parsers: programs that perform pattern matching on text.
They process a Parsing Expression Grammar (PEG) to produce a program that
recognises legal sentences of that grammar.  @command{peg} processes PEGs
written using the original syntax described by Ford; @command{leg} processes
PEGs written using slightly different syntax and conventions that are intended
to make it an attractive replacement for parsers built with @command{lex}
and @command{yacc}.  Unlike @command{lex} and @command{yacc}, @command{peg}
and @command{leg} support unlimited backtracking, provide ordered choice
as a means for disambiguation, and can combine scanning (lexical analysis) and
parsing (syntactic analysis) into a single activity.")

Regards,
Jakub Kądziołka
