I'm designing a LISP-like dialect anyway for another (similar) project.
I'll post my core spec when it's ready. Then, by actually having created
a core spec (it won't be very formal, I'm afraid; I'm no lawyer! Would
a metacircular definition do?!?!?), I'll have made SOMETHING, which people
can either flock to or run from...
