I can't say much; it's not my project. You'd have to ask Vesa to get a
better answer. I believe that it is functional, but I'm fairly certain
that it is not under any active development. I think that Vesa is pretty
much tired of working with the C/C++ preprocessor (and C++ in general) as
opposed to languages that have "real" macro mechanisms such as Scheme.
He's a functional-language type of guy.

Basically, Order is an interpreter that is implemented on top of a
continuation machine.
