Your description is reasonable, althought I can imagine that we will start
with only the following objective in mind: being able to re-emit C code that
looks like CPython.
The code written in RPython ("R"estricted) is only the interpreter-level stuff
(and not absolutely everything, e.g. multi-dispatch should probably be
rewritten by hand in C depending on the low-level object representation). I
was targetting only this part for the RPython-to-C translator. In other
words, this would (at first) be a completely static transformation of the pypy
source to C. This would be application-independent, giving something that can
be easily redistributed as an alternative to CPython.
