I have got them to the stage where they pass an initial set of test cases.

One thing I did find out was that neither the Mercury nor the Zinc grammars
were LR(1).

If you are feeling adventurous, try them out. I will start teaching 361 again
in three weeks, so I expect I will get back to this then.
