Replying to my own post, because I've found some interesting related
work not previously mentioned:


http://www.chrisseaton.com/katahdin/


"Katahdin is a programming language where the syntax and semantics are
mutable at runtime."


[...]


"New constructs such as expressions and statements can be defined, or a
new language can be implemented from scratch. It is built as an
interpreter on the Mono implementation of the .NET framework. "


Public domain source is available from that site.
