It occurred to me today that we have tons of examples of how Lisp functions
can be written in a flavor C. This "compilation" is typically done by hand by
a few experts.

However, what if we had a compiler from Emacs Lisp -> Lisp-flavored C, which
could turn .el files into .c files suitable for compiling into .so's that can
be loaded into Emacs?
