Hm.. Checked my inbox, I never got that message.

I agree. It seems like a lot of code could be shared.
For instance, the conversion system between base<->derived should work
exactly the same and we could probably plug in BPL's system for this
without much trouble.

It would also be really nice if we could share most of the front-end code
(declaration of
scopes, classes and functions).

Note however that there are quite a few differences in design, for instance
for our scope's we have been experimenting with expressions ala phoenix:


Also, we don't have a type-converter registry; we make all choices on what
converter to use at compile time.

Anyway, I am _very_ interested in this.
