There's already a work in progress initiated by Hartmut Kaiser

There's already a work in progress initiated by Juan Carlos Arevalo-Baeza.

Yes, I wish to see both progress further. I'd be very supportive of such a
move in terms of library support for things such as multiple scope symbol
table (which is the reason why I'm scouting for an appropriate in-memory
data-base). What I'd really like to see is a coordinated effort towards
this goal.
