> wouldn't it be easier to implement this in Factor than in Haskell?

I have no idea. I chose Haskell primarily because of the excellent "Typing Haskell in Haskell" resource: https://web.cecs.pdx.edu/~mpj/thih/

I'm getting close to having enough language features working to implement Dawn in itself, though. As soon as I reach that milestone, I plan to write a Dawn-to-C translator sufficient to compile a simple self-hosted interpreter via C, from which point the language will be fully self hosted.
