Having a full python runtime in a browser would be a really bad idea
because imagine a website telling your browser to "import os ;
os.unlink( 'your_secret_very_important_file' )". If you want to write
your browser client code nevertheless in python you can use pypy 
pretty well in conjunction with MochiKit .
