gcjx marches on

Ranjit has
done some nice work on gcjx
recently, adding visitor methods to the model and writing code to
print the AST — in a lispy format, no less.

I’ve also been hard at work on gcjx. I set up a special install
tree so that I could test gcjx-compiled object code against a
known-to-work libgcj. This let me quickly find a number of bugs in
the tree-generation code. At this point most of the libgcj test cases
now work when compiled with the new front end.

This weekend I spent some time working on the type inference code,
and last night gcjx was able to compile its first generic method
invocation.
