And there is a GPLed implementation of this at

The problem is the bootstrapping procedure (you need a running GT.M to
compile the next version) and we just have no idea how to deal with this.
So keeping in mind to avoid a name space polution would be nice but I
would not like to set a presure on the issuer of the ITP because of
GT.M because it is questionable whether we might ever find a real clue.
So feel free to do what you regard as common sense.
