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

I'm sure a compiler could take a non-dynamic subset of Python and
transpile it into another language. Or you could implement an
interpreter in Clojure.

A project called Nuitka turns Python code into a compiled binary. I'm
not quite sure how it works since the dynamic parts of Python have to be
interpreted at runtime still.
