18:50 masak it'll still take some thought further ahead, when macros are going to expect to introspect/modify the fully expanded program, even in a situation where we only want the unexpanded stuff
18:53 vendethiel rings a "phase" bell
18:53 vendethiel which reminds me. SweetJS' big refactor has been merged, have you looked at it?
18:57 masak no -- url?
19:01 vendethiel see https://github.com/mozilla/sweet.js/issues/529, https://github.com/mozilla/sweet.js/pull/531, and the big one was https://github.com/mozilla/sweet.js/pull/485
20:41 masak thanks, will do
20:47 masak interesting.
20:47 masak I should delve more into sweet.js -- it's still unclear to me how many of the ideas employed in it are translatable back to Perl 6.
20:59 vendethiel it's one of the few in the "scripting language with macros and custom operators" category
21:03 vendethiel and they changed *a lot* since last time. it's now.. somewhat "manual parsing"
