Thanks for helping.
At the moment I am looking at
which I use in another project also, it handles http(s)/json very well.
(doing RESTfull stuff)

For the parser I was thinking about http://www.dabeaz.com/ply/
since I have done some real work before with flex/bison (what you know,
hammer/nail kind of thing)
I will take a look at the tools you suggested.

*If anyone has a complete syntax diagram or any other document which
'defines' the SCR syntax fully, that would be very welcome. *

I can extract most info from the
http://www.cadsoft.de/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/V6_manual_en.pdf but it is
not a reference/specification so errors will be made.

Have a good day everyone,
