I'm interested in your project. But, I have a few questions. 1) What is the 
general rationale for your project (what goals do you hope to achieve and what 
prompted you to begin). 2) How does it perform compared with, say, texlive's 
plain TeX in areas such as cpu consumption, memory usage, execution time, etc. 
(especially when document size gets large, like to 5-10k pages) -- do you have 
any benchmarks? 3) Does it have any dependencies other than the standard C 

(I guess that's all the questions I have now)
