it sounds great to blend Python and Lisp!

Except it abandons most of the benefits of lisp.

If s-expressions constitute "most" of the benefits of Lisp, that's a pretty sad statement for Lisp. I don't see any other benefits that it gives up.

Well, the word "macro" doesn't appear on the Pyret home page ... :)

No, but there is an AST module described in the documentation. (-:
