A team of undergrads here is gearing up to produce a Modula-2 compiler for
the Sequent Symmetry system. Nifty features planned for eventual implementation
* Full Modula-2 implementation
* Tools and language constructs for highly parallel programs
* Retargetable (might be a while) backend
* Interface with other DYNIX language systems/tools

Before we get too much deeper into this project, we're actively soliciting
information on existing or planned Modula-2 implementations for this machine.
(The goal is to build a small subset of Modula-2 and use it to bootstrap
the entire compiler.) If some compilers already exist, then we'll find
another target machine.

If there's sufficient interest, I will post a summary of replies.
