To be fair the lsh developers: The lsh project came to life at a time when there was no free SSH implementation available and the GNU task list had a free ssh protocol implementation as an item. Then OpenSSH appeared out of the nowhere. Thus speaking of a GNU re-implementation is in this case not correct. Actually the OpenSSH development was the other way around: They took the last GPL implementation of ssh.com and replaced all GPL code by new code under the BSD license.
IIRC, the reason for the unusual architecture of lsh (i.e. very lispy) is due to several rewrites and that Nisse started reading the Wizard book while working on lsh.
