Hi,

To note is that in order to implement common lisp one need to bypass tree-il
and generate directly to glil, the reason is that tagbody is poorly represented
by tree-il. If we intend to be multilingual it would be nice to be able to effectively
represent those ideoms. Any thoughts on it?

I don't think we should get ahead of ourselves, but emacs has had some
minor CL emulation in things like cl.el and cl-lib. I think these could
be good test cases for the elisp support.
