*nods* I've been pondering about using Python as an (AST-)macro 
language for a test-bed for language design. There are some 
upsides (and downsides) to using a well established scripting 
language for meta-programming.

Thanks! At a glance it looks very similar to D. You seem to keep 
the class/struct distinction? (I'll look at it more closely when 
I get more time.)

Good choice, by «semi-rusty» I hope your intent is to allow low 
level programming with back pointers can be done in a 
clean-looking fashion as well.
