Sometime I see "language X is written in X" and wonder why it is such a big deal. Nobody doubts that X is turing complete
I think it's partly because it demonstrates that a program as sophisticated and as complex as a compiler has been successfully created, and continues to be the standard by which other compilers would have to be written. This has tertiary implications for the suitability of the language to the task and the willingness of the compiler writers to use the language in question.
