vmips has been on the back burner for a while, stuck in release-candidate limbo while I tend to more pressing (i.e., school, bleh) issues. I should learn to keep my mouth shut and not make, er, "forward-looking statements" I think the prospectuses call them, about when my releases are supposed to come out. :-)
Lately I've decided I need to learn how to do type inference and compile Lisp down to low-level code. I am searching for appropriate papers to read.
