Update - Microsoft open-sourced their Razor parser yesterday, and it
has an incremental parser for use in editors:

This is great - not only do we not have to write a parser, we can be
sure it will behave correctly. There will still be challenges plugging
this incremental parser into MD's syntax highlighting engine and
background parser system, and making it hand off regions to C# and
HMTL highlighting and completion engines. But hopefully this will free
up some time to work on more advanced editing features such as source
tooltips, or maybe even rename refactoring support.
