[Ann]: An Implementation of the Shen programming language in Elisp and a call for help

Hi all, I'm happy to announce a port of the Shen programming language  to Elisp . This means that all Shen programs can be run directly from Emacs without any other dependencies. It is available for immediate installation via Melpa .
However I could use some help with a couple of issues with packaging and warnings generated by the byte-compiler: 1. I can't seem to get rid of warnings when byte-compiling the generated "shen.el"  even though I have the byte-compile-warnings property the top of the file. I'm getting a lot of "unused lexical variable" warnings even though "lexical" is in the list of warnings. 2. I would like for the "shen.el" and "shen-primitives.el"  file to be byte-compiled and loaded right after compilation even though they don't have any autoloads. Currently they are only loaded with I call the function `shen/repl`  which doesn't feel very responsive. Ideally they are loaded at the time they are compiled.
