Certainly! Also, I welcome any help. If you'd like to help with
specifying compiler metadata files, please let me know (eventually in a
private email)

I plan to support every compiler out there. All it needs are two files
(settings.txt and rules.txt :))

Yup, but that would require soooo much work :)
I do plan something like this, but in the pretty far future. There are
just so many other things to do until then :)
