Hi Stephan,

I've attached the debug output. It's not saying much to me, so I hope 
you can help. At the point I copied that, [incr tsdb()] was still saying 
2% processed and doing nothing.

At least from the wiki, it seems to allow richer input - direct 
modification of feature structures, unanalyseable  tokens, structured 
input tokens etc.  I'm hoping to look at how enriching the PET input can 
help parsing, not only with POS tags and NER info, but also eventually 
(maybe) RASP or chunking data and it didn't look like YY input could 
give me much more than POS tagging. (If I'm wrong, please let me know.)
