Yes, thats part of the problem.

Detect when we need to exit the current start condition.

We may not even be able to do BEGIN(0) if we have multiple, nested
start conditionals. flex supports start condition stacks, but that
still leaves the exit/closure issue.


table chain {
 chain bla {  /* should start to recognize rules, but
		 we did not see 'rule' keyword */
	ip saddr { ... } /* can't exit rule start condition on } ... */
	ip daddr { ... }
 }  /* should disable rule keywords again */

 chain dynamic { /* so 'dynamic' is a string here ... */

I don't see a solution, perhaps add dummy bison rule(s)
to explicitly signal closure of e.g. a rule context?
