Writing must-have applications with lisp as a scripting language seems
to work (cf. emacs, autocad).  In this case, mind using a full-fleshed
industrial-grade lisp, such as Common Lisp, to ensure perenity.

Another thing would be to provide interfaces to modern ie. modish
interfaces and frameworks.  This can often easily be provided with
libraries.
