13:12 masak so, I was thinking
13:13 masak a lot of the things we want working in 007 (and Perl 6) long term have to do with the compiler infrastructure providing useful interfaces and extension points to the macro/slang writer
13:14 masak in other words, we want to make the language implementation *pluggable*

19:37 vendethiel I don't remember, maybe you can help me a bit -- where did Ipso fall short?
19:38 vendethiel macros but no syntax, right?
19:38 vendethiel ah no, no macros
