 and implementation of a suckless system that solves the problem
 of TTS, ARS and TRS alltogether.
+Suckless programming language
+Although sufficient, C is not a perfect programming language. It suffers
+from legacy syntax and semantics and lacks features that make designing
+libraries and developing abstractions much easier. To address the
+shortcomings the student should survey its problems, evaluate possible
+solutions and enhance the language.
+This is perhaps a bit utopian but still worth considering. Anyhow,
+it should be possible to build a working prototype by reusing existing
+solutions for parsing and code generation.
