[Axiom-developer] Interesting project - Common Lisp in Common Lisp

I don't know if this would interest anyone but me, but there is a
project out there where someone started implementing Common Lisp in
Common Lisp (how's that for recursive ;-)  If someday a literate
implementation of Lisp is considered it might be interesting to define
"bootstrap" code in assembly for various platforms and then have the
bulk of Common Lisp expressed in itself.  I'm not sure how much of a
bootstrap problem this would present - it would be interesting to
study.  Sort of the ultimate "future proofing" - anything capable of
supporting the lisp standard and supplying the needed IO capabilities
would be able to run Axiom, once the needed abilities were defined on
the machine (either in assembly for that platform or some other
compiler if one happened to be available.)
