I certainly hope it will be possible. I'm known for working 24-hours a day
on something that needs to be done... if it wasn't for my full-time job,
this would be more of a reality. Still, I think that since a lot of elements
of programming languages/compilers/interpreters has already been done, we
have something to work with which would aid the R&D aspect.

Thanks for the good wishes.
