Parsability involves being able to read perl code;

Parsing is the activity of assigning meaning to code. And since it's impossible to predict the meaning Perl will assign to code in some circumstances, the parser is non-determinisitc.

Even if you don't buy the conclusion, it's the premise that's interesting, and the problem faced by those who recently posted on p5p (if that's the project to which you were referring).
