Someone going by fiddlerwoaroof (presumably https://github.com/fiddlerwoaroof <https://github.com/fiddlerwoaroof>) was asking on IRC whether there was a fundraiser set up for it yet. I had been meaning to look into it, but I’ve just been very busy. 

I did briefly chat with Gary Palter on IRC who says he’s prepared to do the work once funding is available. 

I think there probably is interest - it just needs someone to go ahead and organise the effort.

The last time I actively pursued this was last year, i.e. many months ago.  The Clozure folks have been eerily quiet this time around.  And no one has taken the initiative to do what seems to me to be the obvious next move, which is to set up a gofundme page or something like that.
