[IronPython] PyPy meets Jython (could meet IronPython too?)

The Jython guys are joining forces with the PyPy guys to collaborate on
CPython compatibility for alternative Python platforms.
Suggestions that are relevant to IronPython include:
# ctypes - try to create _rawffi module in Java for Jython, which will
enable Jython to reuse our existing ctypes implementation (and have PyPy
use the Jython-rawffi for its own for PyPy.JVM)
# generally see to share work / (continue) collaborate regarding
# collaborate on testing framework / benchmarking, have a common site to
show test results
# come up with a set of "pure Python language" tests, which would gather
and refactor tests from CPython, PyPy and Jython.
It would be great to see IronPython participate. A common set of
language tests, written in pure Python, could greatly benefit IronPython.
Additionally, an implementation of ctypes for IronPython (using the .NET
FFI and building on the PyPy work) would enable IronPython to use any of
the extension modules developed for Python by PyPy. More and more
standard library modules are implemented using ctypes now.
All the best,
