Hi Richard!

Thanks a lot!

However, there are build portability issues, 3.2.1 will have to be
soon.  Or maybe, that’s too tempting.

Its languages are C, C++, and Java.  Some features, unfortunately,
are not available in all of them (e.g., C++ does not have push
parsers, Java does not have GLR, etc.).

> What other languages would it be useful for Bison to support?

In the past there were skeletons for Python and D circulating, but how
they would be maintained was not clear, and they were never integrated.

C++ and Java were added when they were contributed.  If there
are nice contributions, we could accept more.  But there’s
already quite a lot to do with the existing skeletons, I’m not
eagerly looking for more work :)
