CMUCL (almost) already has one. It comes with a graphical interface
to the debugger, as well as a native Emacs-like editor, "Hemlock".
Apparently few people use either these days, probably because both
the debugger & Hemlock GUIs are rather clunky & old-fashioned looking,
but they could no doubt be spruced up if someone were willing to put
a little work into it.
