I hit Reply and sent this and then wondered why it wasn't showing up. I 
didn't realize Reply goes to the individual... So, I'm re-sending and 
moving it to the Newton Development thread, even though there is a 
comment about the conference. Cheers!

I almost never post here, but I read pretty much everything.

Seems like if there is a working interpreter, most of the pieces of a 
compiler are done. OTOH, if it wasn't too hard, it probably would have 
been done already. So I'm probably missing something.

I'm interested in all this and will be glad to help as time and ability 
permit. I do develop (scientific visualization), but never have done any 
mobile development. I wrote part of a compiler 3-ish decades ago for a 
class, but most of my work is user/application level.

I had a thought about the (re)Newton Conference. What about video/audio 
links? Then all that has to be agreed upon are the dates. I have no idea 
how the cost/benefit would work out, or what the logistical challenges 
might be. Just a thought.
