Yes. I'd be genuinely curious to see how an implementation in Java, Pascal, C,
(or any other language that has little more than dictionaries) compares to
python and CL.

In my limited understanding I have trouble seeing how you'd do without either
unwind-protect/try-finally or reliable finalizers for starters.
