There is somebody working on std.lexer (a generic lexer) (as far as I 
remember the project started as std.range stress test )

However, I have no problem to imagine that f.i. the Tokenizer will be 
part of the std.lexer module. :)

Regarding std.database.. Please elaborate/  ATM I just can imagine that 
std.csv will be used for Import/Export.
