I made it textproc, as I usually use it for... well, messing with text.
Things like TeX-related snowballs could go there too.
But I can understand parsing, the IRC package I'm working on
uses it more as a parser.
Then again like you said, I could see it being its own category as well.
Maybe something like Andrew Wright's "match" could go in that
In the end though, I was asked to stick it under parsing so that's where
it went. I can always change it again if need be.
