very long and depending on attendees. It's suggested that people would
come to an IRC and chat a bit to have a clue what is feasible on a sprint
and what is not. For example, we can work on:
* JVM backend bindings for Java libraries
-* Extending pypy necessary for software X to run

* Adding more modules to pypy
* Sketching ctypes-based software, killing dependency on C modules
written using C/CPython API.
* Optimizing certain parts of pypy for certain micro-benchmarks.
* XXX whatever...
