 +1. This is of some interest to me. I had contributed some test cases to
 another effort (parallel , not similar) named ShedSkin which was an effort
 to convert Python code to C++ by Mark Dufour. I got interested in the low

 If we can have some ideas to share on Unladen Swallow, let us have
 a meet for it.
