Oh oh. I see that you are trying to pull me into a money thing. All right, but
I guess you are aware that I have no experience in the domain. But I would be
glad to give directions on what I think could be interesting to finance.

In fact I believe it would be very exciting to get funding for Python in
general and PyPy in particular. Alisair talked about getting academic support
and linking PyPy's potentially small footprint with embedded devices -- these
are exactly the two areas where I can help. The EU project I'm part of since
tomorrow is all about specialization (Psyco) for embedded devices. This gives
strong links, even to the point that we could consider active collaboration
between the two projects, and maybe use the existing EU project to financially
spawn the PyPy project.
