But then you still have the old compiler. We need a new compiler that is
clean. Doesn't have to maintain compatibility with all the old stuff.

If you are maintaining existing stuff, you have RPG IV. Writing new modern
code, use the new compiler.

Modern RPG is a great business language. the problem with the compiler
today is it trying to maintain compatibility with RPG III written in 1980.

For compatibility reasons I would prefer an option genshit, defaulting to
genshit(*NO). Having legacy code, you could compile with genshit(*YES).
throwing only warnings, for cycle code, OVRxxx, OVERLAY, call and callb
and
other not typesafe operations...
