The PopLog Common Lisp compiler is written in Pop11.  Incidently, this system
also exercises another of the more unusual implementation options: there is no
interpreter per se: EVAL just compiles and calls the resulting code.

PopLog, from the University of Sussex, is a mixed-language system which
includes Pop11, Prolog, and (when it's finished) Common Lisp.  For anyone
who is interested, the best person to contact there is probably Aaron Sloman.
