A Dylan implemented on Common Lisp

It would seem to me to be a very worthy university project to
build a portable Dylan implementation on top of Common Lisp.
Would someone please do it?

  * Dylan would be instantly available to more people

  * I expect a lot of useful framework code to be written in
    Dylan, and it would be wonderful to be able to use it in
    Common Lisp!

  * Who knows, such a thing might give some impetus to adding
    Dylan's worthwhile optimization features to standard CL.

  * If Lisp-to-Dylan syntax translation is part of the package,
    we CL fans could work in the Dylan-enhanced CL, then export
    our code in Dylan syntax for porting to the sure-to-come
    plethora of native Dylan compilers.
