Are we aiming for 100% compatibility, or 99.9%? For instance, I seem to
recall a few dark corners we aren't planning on covering -- maybe some
details of traceback construction? (I want to say multiple inheritance, too,
but I think that's only an issue for cdef classes, right?) I think it would
be good to have this written down -- in particular, it seems like there's
some momentum right now for clearly delineating "Python language semantics"
vs. "CPython implementation detail" in the python-devel community, so it
might be a particularly good time to raise these questions.
