The abstract idea is great, but why is it so low-level? Generalizing the
various forms of procedure invocations is something that I would certainly
like to do (although it is maybe too soon right now). But why does the
representation have to be bits? Even Python's code objects are more than a
string of bytes.
What would be useful in my opinion is the definition of a Python interface
that can be implemented by various notions of "code objects", including
CPython's code objects, CPython's built-in function objects, and anything else
from Psyco- or GCC-produced machine code to Prolog rules compiled by PyLog.
