We are rewriting Python in Python.
Stepwise. First, getting a minimal
system up and running, replacing the
core modules by hand.
Finally, we want to lift all of the C code
to Python, in order to do certain things
with that, like trying different ways to
copile it back into C, another VM, Psyco,
trying different versions of the object
model, all of that.
And yes, there should be a way to downsize
Python, reasonably, then.

Grilled Python in Perlchicken sauce :-)
