I'm interested in a D *API* for taking in D sources and spitting out the
user's choice of either the parser results, or an AST with all the
semantics/CTFE/etc already run. I get the impressiona lot of people are
intrested in this.
As far as the actual *implementation* behind the D interface, I don't
particularly care if it's C, C++, or D.
I suspect having it D might be a pain until a lot more issues get resolved.
A bootstrapping compiler, I would imagine, would need a much more stable
base than other types of software would need (though I don't have any
experience with bootstrapping compilers, so I could be wrong).
