Absolutely.  I was just hoping for some explanation of the techniques that
are being explored, rather than having to refer to the compiler sources to
see what language is implemented.  An explanation such as "the actual scheme
is quite complex" doesn't give me any information nor confidence that it
would lead to a tractable specification.
