I believe those were all separate projects, although cogent may have
wanted to combine the JavaScript parser and the Klingon. I know he was
after Damian for a while to actually *release* the code for programming
Perl in Klingon, but I don't believe he ever did. Damian did, however
release Lingua::Romana::Perligata and cogent was working on a JavaScript
parser a while back. Not sure if it ever got officially released or what
state it might be in at this late date.
