Alan Kay is working on this in the STEPS project:
http://www.vpri.org/pdf/steps_TR-2007-008.pdf (4.4 Mb)

 From page 4:
"We think students are interested because this project seems new and a 
little unusual, and the business folk because the aim is to reduce the 
amount of code needed to make systems by a factor of 100, 1000, 10,000 
or more."
