I wasn't certain, so I toned down my assertion appropriately :-)

I can provide the source code, but I don't have the time. It should
be a good starting point to someone though.

The code generates the control structures and expressions as it parses
them, so that you should get something working quite soon, however,
after that at least expressions should be first parsed as structures
into memory and then generated to allow constant expression evaluation.
