Thanks for the reply. Per your note, I've e-mailed Reini Urban, as well as Sisyphus and Neil Watkiss.
You mention typed arrays, polymorphism, and a tracing JIT mechanism. I assume these are serious recommendations (not sarcastic)?
I just want to tell you don't lose heart on what chromatic wrote
2013 isn't far away, if you sprint fast enough you can get to something and probably even fail. But you learn tons, fail fast and get something substantial.
Or you may even get there, you never know. How many it has happened people are convinced something is impossible, until somebody comes along and proves them other wise.
If you are determined. Start first. Don't get bogged down by details. Note: Well begun is half done.
