Pardon the top-post stuck with OWA at the moment. I thought it might have been a bootstrapping issue, but wasn't certain.

That is checked in to solve bootstrapping problems. You can't generate
it without a working parser, and it is the parser you need to generate
itself. Thus, we check it in so you can bootstrap a build, and use that
to create a new copy of it. ;)
