What about idea of making a "Pythonic Lisp"...i.e. a Lisp that more closely resembles the syntax of Python?

Well there's ClojureScript to run this hypothetical Pythonic Lisp in the browser.

Say if I may ask a tangential question...I've always wondered whether it would be not too hard to compile Python source code to a Lisp like source code? How hard would it be to say compile Python source to Clojure source?
