@autoreleasepool leftover? #7

Parser.m has an @autoreleasepool block in the parse method. Is this correct or is this a leftover from the Apple example where this class used to be a NSOperation?

I left it in there because parsing can create a whole bunch of temporary objects and it is nice if these get cleaned up by the time parsing ends, so that it doesn't fill up memory too much. Having the @autoreleasepool block there will release all these temporary objects.

Closing this because the code is now deprecated.
