Well dude... if you can get a new language with all these features working
robustly efficiently in less than a few years, you'll have pulled off the
greatest achievement in the history of programming languages. Good luck!!
Maybe it *is* possible now, whereas it wasn't in the past, due to the
accumulation of knowledge about implementing programming languages. Maybe
the time to implement a new language will decrease rapidly now that we're
approaching the Singularity. Who knows?? Life is all about finding out...
