It doesn't include my fave language (i code 020+, not bare 68000).
And it probably does not allow using own libraries.
So no, it hasn't been done before.

Probably not difficult

And how does a language qualify for being "appropriate" ?

The problem with languages such as python is mainly that you often have to use libraries rather than built-in stuff and when these don't support what you want to do, you just scream.

There are lots of possible tasks, if you really want me to suggest some.
Show an IFF image ?
Play a Protracker module ?
Execute some custom bytecode ?
Do some file format conversion ?
Or perhaps something simpler, like a custom atoi() function ?

Right, but it ain't fun.

There is none and it's too bad because i would have a lot of fun beating the crap out of it

I haven't said otherwise but you were speaking about compilers.
