I'll be able to tell you when I come back to BH. At the moment I use my own
system with Alexpander. But you can take a look at my branch:

If you plan on doing this, we should coordinate.

Yes it is relevant. Especially the packages part needs some review. The
macros part is too scary for me to dive into it ATM.

Well, that's a completely different topic: I planned on writing about
techniques for developing syntax-rules macros, but not about implementation
details or any other gory details. Just some practical tutorial. I don't
have time to do this if I get into BH though!

Best regards,
