If you are aiming for a PIM translator, I'd like to suggest you follow the recommendations
(where applicable) in a paper I wrote a few years ago:

On the Maintenance of Classic Modula-2 Compilers <>

Thank you for the interesting reference.

I do not agree with all of the suggestions proposed but my intentions with mc are two-fold: (1) to use whatever is in mc with as little modification as possible (so that whenever mc changes, I can take the changes with little or no effort); and (2) there is a lot of legacay PIM code that is not cost-effective for me to modify.
