Cool. I think it would be great to eliminate more GPL.
It would be cool if you had a regression suite for this. Perhaps we
could just whatever regression suite GNU bc/dc has (there would not be
any GPL issues with the resulting program if we merely used a GPL'd
regression suite, since it is not linked into the resulting program).
