I suppose. I'll add that to the spec.

I think the answer is Yes. Each state would be a search or iteration instance. 
They could be searching different files or have different search parameters. 
I think the analogy that was used previously was to think of them as "FILE 
*". Using that analogy, a program can have multiple FILE *, each unique since 
they have their own fopen call which initializes the resources and state. 
auparse_init would be equivalent to fopen in this analogy.
