You want a one to many relationship between a language and its
parser(s)?  I can't see a benefit of trying to parse the same language
in different ways.  Also, the platform does not currently support this.
You can, however, have multiple languages loaded for the same file
(i.e., HTML/PHP/CSS/JS).  Would this accomplish what it is you need to
