What if you could write Python code with an alternate interpreter/preprocessor that allowed you to use different keywords in your native tongue, including ideogrammic languages? This proposition comes from a thought that Python semantics may be flexible enough to act as a VM for the new CEDSimply language.
I stole this idea from you - but refering to this blog entry which creates together with this comment some kind of circularity. I used EasyExtend for the simple part of this job and it became a snippet. The hard stuff is not yet done and I'm not sure I'm ever going to do so. It's not so much wrapping the std-lib which is tedious but simple and requires just diligence but all kinds of messages which are sent by the interpreter.
I also did not yet implement a back-translation to english Python code. The prettyprint function of the EasyExtend framework ( implemented in cst2source.py of the EasyExtend distribution ) does not work correct yet. But what should work for builtin names in general will fail for user defined -- making a programming language a kind of universal translator is very tempting of course :)
