metaruby
    http://www.zenspider.com/

DESCRIPTION:
  
metaruby is a reimplementation of ruby in ruby. The intent is to make
it easier to understand, maintain, and extend ruby.

Eventually it will have a complete parser, interpreter, core library,
and a ruby-subset-to-c translator (maybe parrot instead... not
sure). We'll be modifying rubicon as our test suite.

MILESTONES:

1) Basic Porting

  1) [DONE] everything.rb generats and runs without warnings.
  1.1) [DONE] preprocess.rb and port.rb have the absolute minimum of HACK tags.

2) Parser/Interpreter/Translator

  1) parser does a sucessful first pass at everything.rb
  2) parser actually generates ASTs
  3) interpreter can run ASTs
  4) Library milestones can pass under interpreter
  5) parser can generate C and/or parrot code.
  6) Library milestones can pass under generated & compiled interproter.

3) Library

  1) ZArray passes all of it's rubicon tests using ruby interpreter
  2) ZHash, ZFile, ZIO, ZDictionary pass all their tests

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:
  
+ Soooo far from done...
