| If there were a statically, implicitly typed Lisp, would you use it?

  Common Lisp is already statically, implicitly typed.  All objects are
  of type T, and this is very rigourously enforced.

| What qualities of dynamic typing would you miss?

  You may have noticed that every language worth using these days has
  (added) an object system that carries type information in the objects.
  You appear to want to take a step backwards in this respect.  Why?
