You are absolutely right at this point. I guess, about everyone using or 
developing GNU-Sather would put his name under this sentence.

Since state of the internal structure of the compiler is actually even worse 
than it's outside appearance (yes that is possible!) the only way to get out of 
that dilemma is to write a completely new compiler from scratch. First design 
has already been done on that, but for the moment, highest priority lies to get 
the required library stable. Anyhow, help with the work on the compiler will be 
appreciated very much as soon as a number of most urgent questions will be 
resolved. (See my other message...)

Unfortunately, it will take quite a while until that new compiler is up for 
production work. I know it will not be an easy time to wait for it, but there's 
little one can do about it. (Except, of course, volunteer for working on it to 
speed up development. Just stay tuned for details on that...)
