I think it supports most features except arrays(needs loop unrolling support). However, the optimizer is fairly simplistic. For better optimizations you may want to investigate SSA transformations and related stuff. I guess perfect optimization isn't a requirement for a first version though.

First thing would probably be cleaning up and getting something minimal past AJ.

Am I supposed to find your compiler code there? It seems like a git
tree of ages ago (where d3dx9_36 only contains math and font code).
