Judging by
it is being worked on.  The claim is that there's an emacs lisp compiler
to guile that gives (or will give RSN) a faster implementation than that
in Emacs.

I presume the language will be equivalent to current emacs lisp (so that
wouldn't force the rewrite and perhaps spur the improvements you'd like
to see), on the other hand not having to rewrite the lisp libraries
would make it an easier sell.  Presumably it could easily support
lexical binding (and closures) and other features.

Nothing wrong (IMHO) in proceeding to improve emacs lisp by integrating
the lexical-binding branch, perhaps adding hygienic (or other) macros,
