One other task that might be even more important is to write tests based
on the spec.  Basically the process goes like this:

   For each bit of the spec, try to exercise the statement, write plenty
of cases.  For each bit that is supposed to be prohibited, make a test
that exposes this case, and put those as a negative test.  

   But basically, we need a better test suite than just the test we have
been developing: we need a thorough set of tests.  There are commercial
regression tests for the C# language, but they are too expensive, and
they are not free either.
