I want clay, complete freedom, and Perl.

Funny, a few years ago I fantasised about writing a language called Clay. I even came up with a marketing line: "Munging, messing with data has never been so deep, so intense, so different..." (or something like that) :). Clay was supposed to be written on top of or as a second generation of HC (Hygienic Classifier) (I borrowed the term "Hygienic" from Scheme's Hygienic Macros, and "Classifier" had nothing to do with OOP, in fact it was a not at all paradigmatic (paradogmatic?), minimalist, textual, principled and open-ended approach at the thorny problem of classifications).

Maybe some day I'll get myself to rescue the papers, complete the design and write a working implementation of HC and Clay (in Perl, of course). Time, gentlemen, please!
