i think that PyPy's advances are not too much related to
language compat issues but rather to better GCs, stackless,
JITting, optimisations, etc. So i don't see the language
compat as the central theme. Also, we might be starting
sometime to release a pypy that can generate interpreters for
two different CPython versions - how would you name this?
