I'm afraid that I'm more inclined to deeply document the existing
compiler before trying to tackle the problem of language modification.
Experience shows me that all of my programming mistakes occur in places
where my understanding is weakest. So first I understand, then I change.

I was not part of the Aldor compiler effort as I strongly objected to coding
the new compiler in C rather than rewriting the existing compiler. My
contribution to the Aldor effort involved making Aldor work inside Axiom 
and writing a tutorial for the Aldor final product. Despite my objections
I did use the compiler to implement my PhD thesis work.
