I just remembered that there was a reason this priority function was kept 
simple from the begging (integers only). This function is called per session, 
thus having a parsing routing like this would add some overhead... This could 
be insignificant compared to RSA/DH etc, but still in a busy server it might 
become significant.

What I had thought then was to make this parsing routine output the result
in a gnutls_priority_st structure and then associate this struction with every 
session. If found that solution complex then...
