If it relies on GC (and afaik Oberon has the same problem), an RTL based on
GC first has to be explored first, and the extend of the changes.
But more importantly, what would be the use of supporting Prism?

If you want paralel, take vector pascal, and implement it in e.g. the FPC or
objfpc dialect.  Implementing the whole of Prism and its extensive baggage
for just that is insane.
