    Hey,

    I read over some of the documentation and the manifesto and some other stuff on Boo. It looks like a very interesting language with a lot of promise. I have been designing a spec for a language I call Lima for the past four years. I have no implimentation, but alot of the ideas I have are similar to things Boo has done - including allowing for compiler extensions and redefinitions of intermediate compilation steps. I'm posting here because I couldn't find any other way to contact. Interestingly enough, both Boo and Lima arrised from the same frustrations about current languages. I've put what spec I have for Lima up at http://www.uweb.ucsb.edu/~frencheneesz/Lima/Frame_Lima_main.htm . Of course I believe my language is the greatest there is and everything, as I'm sure Boo's creators think as well. I do think there are areas where I think Lima's syntax is indisputably more clean and consistant than than Boo's - like array and list literals, and slicing. I've been looking for collaboration. Is there any path you can lead me on? Thanks, ~Billy
