Just to verify -- you do remember that python doesn't have a good
equivalent to Lisp macros? Adding a function or class is not so hard.
Adding syntax ... is harder. There are projects (like Kid and Logix)
that do it, generally through import hooks, but ... this part may be a
bigger undertaking than you expected.
On the other hand, import machinery hooking has been greatly improved
-- and is still a wart; if you manage to clean it up, that is a good
and useful thing by itself. So that part might make it into mainline
CPython, even if the specific Cells extension didn't.

Are there no non-GUI demos? Fighting GUI library quirks is possibly open-ended.
