The first time I did this was for translating COBOL to a special-purpose 
dialect.  Not a simple lexical task--it was a full-blown two-pass affair.

The initial test versions of the thing were very, very slow.  Once the 
native-code version was rolled out, it was very, very fast.  Development 
time was pretty fast.
