And, if I may quote from Kirby's follow-up post
Loosely coupled tools, with a bottom-up, open source curriculum
writing process, will leave the question of tools somewhat open-ended.
The lesson plans will specify the software needed, with multiple paths
+1.  I couldn't agree more :-)
Momentum seems to be building for a stronger graphics engine, either
2D or 3D, with Python bindings, that'll run interactively from within
a browser. The Squeak folks may be willing to contribute to this
effort. Guido feels we'll need to recruit new talent for this, as the
Python community is currently pretty maxed out on projects. Should
such an engine be developed, turtle stuff would be incorporated

I would love to see this happening and would definitely be willing to
contribute to such an effort.  Of course, I would use this to port
rur-ple to the web (as a first step).  Anybody else is as excited
about this possibility as I am?
