This would be a good idea. Is it possible to define a Common Lisp
subset that would map into Dylan? Then all that is needed is
the CommonLisp-to-Dylan syntax translation, which I think would
be easy. Hmm, isn't nil /= false in Dylan. That's hard to fix in syntax.
If the CL->Dylan mapping isn't 100%, maybe we could
push hard to get Dylan changed so it would be.
Why not make it CL-subset-able?
