I agree with you. I think yacc is a suckless tool, and I am sure we will
have to use it for awk (we will have to implement it some day), but
I also agree that in this case is too much. A recursive descendant
parser for expr is pretty simple.

I think we can take it, because it is better to have a version made
by us. If we have time/interest in the future then we can change
the yacc parser to a recursive one.
