Wouldn't you be better off sitting ontop of a JITing runtime that
already supports that? The most obvious candidate being the .Net runtime
because that is widespread, seems to be better than the Java one and
with Mono for Linux and the DLR for the Web (Windows/Mac/Linux) runs
pretty much everywhere.
Plus you then get the benefit of all the tool support for .Net including
if someone wants to write it a language extension for intellisense in
Visual Studio (Sapphire Steel have done this for Ruby).
Microsoft seem to be pretty keen on helping people move languages to the
DLR (IronPython and IronRuby come to mind). The IronPython package ships
with source so that you can see how to put a language ontop of the DLR.
