Regarding your question about state of the art, you might also want to look at this paper from 2013: <>. I do not think that it is the future dynamic languages toolkit Attila speaks about, but it might be related work. It is a dynamic languages toolkit with several open source projects building implementations on top of it:
- Ruby: <>
- R: <>
- Python: <>
- Smalltalk: <>

Cheers, thomas
