Create a lightweight language for specifying PAST (or bytecode) optimizations. This may also include extensions to PCT to make it easy to add optimization stages between the standard stages.

I'm going to say "no". There are tools in existence to optimize PAST. A simple declarative language to write optimizations would be nice but would likely be provided by an external tool such as tree-optimizations or something similar.

I'm going to close this ticket. A "nice to have, but will probably be implemented outside core Parrot" kind of request is something that could appear in a blog or on the wiki, but does not need a ticket to track it.

Thanks, whiteknight. I heartily agree and am glad to see some of these long-term wishlist tickets go away.
