Hi! Creator of cgen here. cgen is a personal project of mine. As is, it has a sufficient amount of functionality for building a non-trivial project, but there are certainly many rough edges that will need to be found through further exploration and usage. I'd also like to emphasize that I find the paradigm of mixing code with code generation like this more fascinating and compelling than my particular implementation of it. I'd love to hear your comments both on the concept and on the particular implementation, and I'd be happy to look at pull requests for cool new usages or for improvements to core cgen.
