I've not got a lot of POV-Ray time today, but ran a few random quick 
parse scenes - all OK. Then three sets using the Harmonograph.pov
code posted to the newsgroups early last year - loops of the type we 
want sped up. Comparing master to your tagged release. All testing done 
on a ramdisk though doesn't matter much in the cases I ran. Ubuntu 16.04 
g++ 5.4.0.

New parser faster :

28.80 -> 26.60 ---> -7.64%
28.80 -> 26.34 ---> -8.54%
29.24 -> 26.36 ---> -9.85%
