Hugo sent a short report on the actual achievements on the Overture
Interpreter and actually is almost finishing the automatic code
generation approach which cannot step further until some bug fixes
are done to the code generator.

Sander was traveling back from Newcastle, but sent a status report
in advance and everyone feels that his work looks very good.
