There are already quite a few Smalltalk elements in Factor (and the postfix language itself (for most things) could be used as the byte-code engine for a Smalltalk (looking backwards) and for more adventurous designs (looking forward)).
Factor already has a Smalltalk implementation (a parser and compiler to Factor code) that Slava did a while back as a proof of concept. I'm not sure how performant or complete it is however.
Dan Amelang has been moving Nile to a really nice place, and it would be relatively easy to retarget the OMeta compiler for this (particularly the JS grounded one) to ground in Factor.
Is there a Nile grammar somewhere? I tried searching for it and didn't come up with anything. I see Dan's github repository but it doesn't seem to include the Ometa definition.
