First of all,
parsers will not make it before September.
I am sorry about that.
Currently I am fixing issues with the design, that for example
prevent slices of slices to work.
Also I am writing analysis and debugging code to (such as
generating a call-graph and primitive DFA) that will hopefully
make function-calls work reliably.
The DMD-AST does not make it easy to track things like variables
originating from a parent-scope.
I feel that this can have a positive impact on the whole of dmd,
since that will allow better frontend-optimisations.
I am happy for all comments or suggestions.
