I've been watching the room, and it seems Nettle will be rewritten in Common Lisp. The consensus there is CL is faster than Python and will work just as well, except for finding libraries. This has seemed to be a nonissue, except the needed ECDSA code is not in Quicklisp. nettle-forum will be the first to be ported.

The output of the new libnettle provided by no-defun-allowed is:

CL-USER> (parse-nettle-object (format nil "Hello world!~%Hello children!"))
CL-USER> (maphash (lambda (x y) (format t "~a => ~a~%" x y)) *)
Hello => (world! children!)

Really looking forward to this change if it happens. /f/nettle disappeared so I figured the information would be alright here.

Edit: here's the forum and the library.

A CL Nettle would be so cool!

It's happening. The only setback is there's no ECDSA libraries for CL. Everything else seems to be in place.
