    That's...not a completely crazy idea. Hmmm...

    It might be possible to take a CML2 rulebase and generate a sort of stupid
    jackleg CML1 translation of it. The resulting would be huge
    and nasty, and would only work in forward sequence with no side-effect
    computation, but you just might be able to get the old tools to parse it.

    Again there's a technical problem with derivations. Probably solvable.

    But the real question is whether the old tools have enough value to be
    worth the effort. What problem are you trying to solve here?
