Though I do not know much about hy, I do know the following:

- There are some libraries written in hy[0].

- There are tools written in hy specifically designed to handle hy.[1]

- Some hy libraries contain macros that I don't think compile into python. It looks at first glance like hyclib[2] and hyiter[3] are examples of such packages, though I have not confirmed.

- The libraries and programs I have found written in hy look like they would use python-build-system. If we see patterns in defining these packages, we can always provide a hy-build-system for convenience.

we should justify moving Hy perhaps to its own module. I am
not overly familiar with Hy, I know that it uses and is compatible with
Python libraries (as Hy is mostly just sugar on-top of the Python
runtime) but do Hy-specific libraries exist? If so, I think that would
make the case for moving Hy to its own module even stronger.
