It would be a very tedious and painful task with the end result being something that is thoroughly impractical due to long compile times and the impossibility of maintaining it.

Really ? try perusing proto to its fullest, it's not that hard to
maintain as soon as oyu have a neat generic package around
and use it to geenrate a proper intermediate representation of your code

Compile time is an expendable ressources, runtime is not.
