Before the post will go to sleep I highly assume there is a volunteer for this topic.
Any volunteers? Maybe the Clean guys themselves are predestined for the job.
You should snap at the chance to make a poll to your project called Clean.

I know, I know, I know. The following is not really welcomed (okay, I am Austrian) but I
will consigne it:
I highly recommend to support the compiler inmplementor with code in the language itself
and not with code for implementing the language. The latter is the job for all the
Forther out there: 90% language implementors for Forth and 10% coders for Forth (okay, I
am a really bad Austrian: what can you do with Forth apart from implementing it?).
