Now that the Muq infrastructure is more or less in place, the fun of actually doing various things with it can start!
This section outlines some of the directions I'd like to see Muq go. Some of them are projects I intend to do, some are projects I'd like to do but likely won't have time, and some are projects I'd love to see done but cannot possibly do myself.
You'll note a lot of compilers listed.
Because compilers are a major part of programmer's toolkit, and a good programmer, like a good carpenter, uses the right tool for the job.
Programmers will no more voluntarily use APL for an assembly job or assembly for a Perl job, than would a carpenter voluntarily use an electric drill for a mallet or a screwdriver for a chisel.
One of the great potential strengths of Muq is that it can free programmers to use the right syntax for the job, in contrast to one-tool-for-all-jobs software environments.
