I would rather not create yet another Emacs fork.
If you (we?) can convince either XEmacs people or RMS that Common Lisp
is the way to go, I will contribute.

RMS> because that would require adding far too much to it.

Actually, this is a red herring: the amount to be added to Emacs is
minuscule compared to what is already there, and Emacs will not grow
noticeably because of that.

I am pretty sure that Guile+"3 widely used Scheme object systems" is
larger than Common Lisp.
