my 2 cents and things I would be interested in...

I think it would also help to know in general about interpreters, and the
python interpreter particularly.
about having JITs for Python interpreter etc. And improving Python
performance in general..using dataflow optimizations to the bytecode itself.
Also about packaging in Python, what are his thoughts on the ideal solution.
And about his experience on concurrency approaches in Python....coroutines
vs threads vs processes etc

Thanks and best regards,
Vishal Sapre
