For some time, I've been thinking about creating "Lake, Rake in Lisp". The point would be to make the system very extensible (even more than Rake), since the data structure would be available (since it's a lisp environment). Of course, it'd mean thinking really hard about the data structure to use, but I already have some ideas.
It'd mean that Lakefiles would be written in Common Lisp. Some stuff would be simplified, such as not specifying a package (with in-package), but would still be available to those wanting to go wild.
Do you think this kind of software would be used? Clearly, the CL community doesn't especially need it. But Rake isn't only used in Ruby.
So... yeah. I wouldn't want to start something that I know will never be used. Thoughts?
