[BangPypers] python for embedded?

It would be interesting to find if someone has attempted to implement the
PythonVM on an FPGA as a processor.A processor with Python VM instructions
as its native instruction set will run so much more fast...Instead of a
Python runtime, you'd have a python processor executing the byte code as
native instructions.
Seems to be a good 1st order assumption...

In fact, implementing a VM in microcode inside a processor, could be a great
way to increase the speed of applications. (context switches when OS loads
applications written in other environments would have to be handled well
