Autrijus: Actually, I think Pugs and Parrot will meet in the middle. W
+here Pugs AST meets Parrot AST and the compiler is written in Perl 6
+that can then be run on Parrot.
chromatic: It's easy for me. I don't plan to do it.
Autrijus: The easier plan is simply for Pugs to have a Compile.hs that
+ emits Parrot AST. Which, I'm happy to discover yesterday, is painles
+s to write. (Ingy and I did a KwidAST->HtmlAST compiler in an hour, t
+ogether with parser and AST.)
chromatic: Are you compiling it to native code now? I remember that be
+ing a suggestion a few days ago.
chromatic: Except maintainable.
Autrijus: And yeah, there's the maintainable bit. Pugs is <4k lines of
+ code. I think porting Pugs to Perl 6 will take about the same number
+ of lines, too.
