We have done this under ESPRIT project (EP5497 PROCIC and EP9152 SENDIT)
funding, and it is quite possible to make a stack language be a suitable
target for conventional compilers. It is also possible for back-end generators
to generate quite good code.

You should also look at the ANDF technology produced by the OMI-GLUE project,
which was considered for use by one of the Unix consortia.
