In case you would like to apply with PyPy, you should definitely
discuss with PyPy devs (I'm fairly sure if you want to apply with
Pynie, you should discuss with Pynie devs as well).
There is a plan for PyPy to have 2.6 features this summer. Please come
to #pypy on freenode to get details if you want.
