Some time ago, I had the idea of an extensible compiler. One with kind of a
plugin system. Or even better, a "keyword" keyword that allows you to define
new keywords by providing classes that implement certain Interfaces that
allow the compiler to parse and emit your new language feature. I already
have a name for that language - it would be "Sugar" (lot's of syntactic
sugar included ;-)

How do you think about that idea? (I wish I had more time for such stuff :-/
