You ask an expert for an opinion,
Nobody asked anyone's opinion in this thread. That didn't stop many self-proclaimed experts popping up to regurgitate their mostly second-hand expertise.
If you want to build a project on the opinion of uneducated amateurs,
Who are you calling uneducated? Who are you calling an amateur?
I suppose there's a chance you'll succeed.
Hedging your bets already.
Have you ever implemented a dynamic language like Perl?
Yes. I wrote my first basic interpreter in in 1972/73 -- were you born then? Or still in your diapers?. The first version ran like a dog; the second was a vast improvement.
And circa. 1987, a friend and I wrote a Small C interpreter. And used it to build an extended DOS shell -- also an interpreter.
I will believe that when I see it.
But if we followed your proscriptions, nobody would try and you would never see it.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
