I contributed a bunch of code to the Python generator, but still I think a 
compiler written in Java makes sense. If we can use JIRA as an indication of 
activity, the number of issues and contributors in the Java front is greater 
than in the Python one.

Do you mean writing two compilers (one in Java and the other one in Python)?

In that case, it would make more sense to use ANTLR and let it generate 
parsers in different languages.
