I'm not sure that is what is implied.

I share Tim's view that if this stuff has to be done not directly
within the compiler but by translating to an intermediate language,
then I think Lisp is a better choice.  However, I would see the
interface to be typed.  That does not preclude the use of Lisp as an
intermediate representation.

I suspect part of the suggestion is to have Aldor use Lisp as an
intermediate representation language.  Ideally, I would prefer to see
a Lisp-like language but with a more expressive type system.
