I'm working on it. I now have:

. unit, bool, int, float.
. tuples.
. arrays.
. algebraic datatypes.
. function pointers.
. tail calls.
. generic printing.
. catching stack overflows.
. C FFI.
. JIT compilation to high performance native code.

I need to implement closures and a GC before I release anything. Then I'll add 
parametric polymorphism, exceptions and a front end.
