phf: apropos, and i think we had that thread, but best russian translations were always done by actual writers, rather than dedicated translators (though there was a handful of talanted ones) [00:52]

asciilifeform: i will add, thing is deliberately shaped in such a way that it could be hand-compiled to relatively uncomplicated asm, on most archs, by a clueful reader. my yet-ungenesis'd parallel attempt at this is somewhat behind the ada, but i expect will be maybe 3000 ln. total in the end.
