This is all very cool stuff, but sometimes I wander if it isn't possible
to drop the special languages for fiddling with types, and introduce
just a single language which has no types, only raw data from which you
can built your own "types" (as in the old days when we used macro
assemblers ;-), but the language has two special keywords: static and
dynamic, where code annotated with static runs in the "compiler domain",
and code annotated with dynamic runs in "application domain". Of course,
I don't know much about this, so this idea might be totally insane ;-)
Probably this is impossible because of the halting problem or something...
