Reimplement TeX in Lisp? I think not...

I think that there is something very wrong with an operating system
requires new applications to be "compiled" to the language that the
operating system is written in just to run. Why would the fact that the
operating system is written in Lisp stop programs written in C from
working? The set of OS functions available might be different, but
that's a problem whether the source is in C or Lisp. C->Lisp->Binary
cannot be substantially easier than C->Binary.
