Well then, maybe I was just imagining things. Would be interesting to have a CL implementation of arc.

Though, I'd probably end up implementing something closer to wat.js with the arc library.

What was the reason pg decided not to go with CL for the base of arc? I remember seeing him say it somewhere...

He originally did write it using Common Lisp[0].

I'm not sure why he changed it though. There must have been some benefit (maybe the lisp-1 vs lisp-2) which made it easier to write arc.
