[pypy-dev] focus: CPython <-> PyPython

There have been quite some discussions about how
to relate to the ever-progressing CPython development.
To recap i try to formulate some agreements:
a) the Python language is not to be modified
b) if in doubt we follow the CPython lead
b) CPython core abstraction levels should
be cleanly formulated in Python.
c) Macros may be used at some levels if there
really is no good way to avoid them.
But a) and b) still hold.
d) our Pythonic core specification is intended
to be used for all kinds of generational steps
(to C, Bytecode, Object-C, assembler, for
PSYCO-Specilization whatever, etc).
e) if in doubt i follow Armin's and Christian's
lead regarding the right abstraction levels :-)
e) there is all kinds of nice stuff to try
f) there are a lot of wishes, thoughts, suggestions
and ... names :-)
There is some disagreement about how to cope with the
CPython codebase and python-dev's ongoing C-development.
Which isn't really problematic for the time beeing.
We might have a model and some working code before
PyCon (the python developers conference in Washington
in March). It should be an ideal opportunity to discuss
Any strong objections or agreements on this recap?
