It has a number if significant problems (C99, C++, GNU extension  
support etc), and my understanding is that the code base is difficult  
to deal with.  I have not experimented with it or looked at the  
implementation in enough depth to know how useful it would be for non- 
codegen tasks though.  The bigger problem with Tendra is that the  
project is effectively dead, or moving so glacially that is  
effectively dead (AFAIK).

Have you used Tendra before?
