Hi,

I'm currently toying with the idea of trying a tree-sitter parser for Org. The very static nature of a shared object parser (knowing TODO keywords are pretty dynamic for example) is a challenge I'm not sure to overcome ; to be honest even without that I can't say I'll manage to do it.

Having a tree-sitter parser would be really great in my opinion, at least it's a clearer way to "freeze" the syntax with some tests describing the syntax tree with S-expressions. And tree-sitter seems to be the popular sought after solution to slowness in parsing (and incremental parsing of org files would help with big files in my opinion)
