I am suggesting that we push forward on the "shared library" approach to the files in the Lib/* directory, so that would certainly include IronPython and PyPy as well I hope.
The easy part for Jython is pushing some of our "if is_jython:" stuff into the appropriate spots in CPython's Lib/.
I wonder if there isn't a better way to do this than sprinkling is_jython, is_pypy, is_ironpython, is_thenextbigthing all over the code base. I have no bright ideas here, but it seems like a feature matrix would be a better way to go than something that assumes a particular Python implementation has a particular feature set (which may change in the future).
