There are a couple of spots that might be more controversial. For example, Jython has a file Lib/zlib.py that implements zlib in terms of the existing Java support for zlib. I do wonder if such a file is acceptable in CPython's Lib since its 195 lines of code would be entirely skipped by CPython.
That's a bit annoying. How will we know that the code still works, even though our buildbots don't exercise it? Also, what happens if the code doesn't work anymore?
That is definitely something to think about. Maybe when this becomes a serious effort and not just talk I can help get a Jython buildbot going.
