It won't find its way into my primary list, because it requires 
according updates of the internal compiler data structures, RTL and 
more. We'll need a team of experts that works together on the definition 
and implementation of all the new features, in all affected parts of the 
compiler. Some refactoring of the existing compiler infrastructure may 
be required before this step, so that the further development can stay 
synchronized with the mainstream development and fixes. The 
syntax/semantics separation is a step towards this goal, that can be 
followed by another generalization of the semantical actions.
