|+Probably the biggest question is what language we want to use. We'll be|
|+spending a huge amount of time writing whatever it is. We need some criteria:|
|+ * how easy is the language to learn for people accustomed to C|
|+ * does the language has an object system? We'll be implementing cmop (6model)|
|+ in it, so the object system needs to be either self-hosting or non-existent|
|+ * how efficiently does the language map to M0? We want to generate efficient|
|+ M0 and to have a clear idea of what the M0 for a given snippet looks like|
|+ * it shouldn't allow things that don't make sense in M0 (not sure what this means)|
|+ * the language should allow CPS stuff, either directly or indirectly.|
|+ Indirectly is probably easier.|
|+ * need distinction between compile-time and runtime constructs|
|+ * need typed variables|
|+ * something struct-like|
|+ * a way to define M1 ops composed from M0 ops|
|+ * light syntax, easy to implement, no optimizations|
|+ * if we want macros, they need to be way smaller than C's|
