I still have some (very) small hope that it can be finished.  If we
don't get it done soon then I fear that it will never happen.  I had
hoped that a SoC student would pick up the task or someone would ask
for a grant from the PSF.  Oh well.

Another thought I've had recently is that most of the complexity
seems to be in the CST to AST translator.  Perhaps having a parser
that provided a nicer CST might help.
