Unfortunately this requires two things:
1) Porting, or continuing to support, all of the existing elisp code
so that emacs will continue to be emacs. I believe it's been
tried many times before (e.g. "JEmacs is a re-implementation of
Emacs, written in a mix of Java, Scheme, and ELisp") and usually
ends in tears.
2) Delving into the emacs core C code. From tiny glances at it over
the years, merely observing that code may be enough to destroy
whatever quantum-mechanical magic allows it to work at all. I
just risked my sanity by glancing at lisp.h, and yes it appears
they are still using tagged pointers.
