[pypy-dev] recent lisp support / cross-language

i think it's nice that we start to have clisp support. but there
are no unit-tests and 'translator/gencl.py' adds more code to keep
in sync with our model. So without tests i wouldn't like this code
to exist. I guess we need some boilerplate that allows starting
lisp-programs from commandline with instructions which functions to
call and parsing the results. the unittests could then do the same
what they do for pyrex: checking that the function at least computes
btw, I can imagine a cross-language sprint aimed at producing multiple
backends (C, Pyrex, CLISP, whatever) or multiple frontends (prolog...).
That would certainly help to get the wider language research/developer
community get interested.
A dumb side-question: can clisp-source be annotated with types
or is it just another VHLL :-) ?
P.S.: if Seo wants to maintain the lisp area for the time beeing i am
for giving him commit privs.
