No, but one reason to rewrite DASM would be to make it easier to retarget.
I wrote the F8 backend for DASM which required some ugly hackery and gave
up on a Z80 backend. Especially DASM's expression evaluator is too 6502 (and
similar CPUs) specific. And it's also broken. Apart from that broken expression
evaluator there isn't any infrastructure to write handcrafted parsers.
