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

I know we're definitely interested in pursuing a ctypes-based extensibility
standard for Python, and we're continually pushing our lawyers to increase
the allowed level of our interaction with other open source projects.

Hopefully, we'll be able to provide a less vague answer than this before too
much time passes. :)

> 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 extension
> modules
> # 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.
