Hi Berthold,

Thanks for the response and suggestion for the workaround and sorry for my
slow response. The context I was trying to get gg working in is a web-app
that depends only upon ACE and doesn't invoke any other DELPH-IN machinery,
so I think I'm stuck with using ACE's repp. I was mainly trying to get gg
working in an effort to plug in as many grammars as possible to my app for
a demo at the recent summit, however standalone ACE support would be good
to have more generally as it seems that embedding ACE within an
application/library is an increasingly popular way of using DELPH-IN
grammars (eg pyDelphin <https://github.com/delph-in/pydelphin>, demophin
<https://github.com/goodmami/demophin> in addition to my Typediff
