I wish all the lisp versus python wars would go away, but if they really
want to do 'my language is bigger than your language' then cross
language translation is the way to go. Then they can argue about code
size efficiency etc in some reasonable way. Assuming both languages are
Turing complete probably eliminates most of the arguments anyway.
