If you're looking for more people to nag you... I'm working on a 
compiler for a new declarative language. Right now we're using Haskell 
for a proof-of-concept interpreter, though one of the near-term goals 
for the compiler itself is a Java FFI/backend. Since much of the 
language is in the runtime engine, it'd be a shame to have to rewrite it 
all in Java or deal with the horror of JNI.

Live well,
