Elisp LSP Server

Sorry, that thread "Re: Do shorthands break basic tooling (tags, grep, etc)? 
(was Re: Shorthands have landed on master)" has grown too big.

But scrolling through it, I realized I wanted to ask for a long time:

Has anyone thought about writing a LSP Server for Emacs Lisp?

You know, so Emacs Lisp can be comfortably edited outside of Emacs. "Why would 
anyone want that?", you ask?

Well, for example, when something breaks in your config, and you can't even 
start Emacs, and you have to use something else. It's rare, but it happens.

Another reason: VSCode. The damn thing is spreading like a disease. And now 
it's even possible to browse code on GitHub, in a browser, by simply pressing 
<.> (the dot).
I would love to be able to comfortably browse through elisp code without having 
to clone it locally, but none of the existing VSCode Lisp plugins are any good.
For example, there's no equivalent of imenu for Lisp files. You can't jump to a 
given function.

I don't care much for VSCode, but LSP provides good consistency. I would love 
to be able to use elisp packages like lsp-ui while writing elisp code [in 

Thanks, Ag
