if    you are just writing whatever it is for yourself
      don't mind using a big, alpha package that isn't part of plt yet
      don't mind that it only runs on x86 for now
      don't mind that the package isn't documented
      don't mind programming in language that has C-like semantics
      (but much nicer syntax) with C-like speed.

 I might have something to offer you
