Joining the group, learn svn, create a sub-project,
discuss it, find out what we are trying to implement,
find out how Prothon's needs can be built in.
On the latter, I think this will not be that much.
You need a new object space and a different interpreter.
At least I think it makes sense for you to talk in

I guess no, not in this round, unless someone drops off
whom we need to replace, but you can join the sponsored
group when we apply for the next funding. Well, you would need
to be European, or employed by a European firm or institution.
We are trying to get Tim Peters in for that, for instance.

It is less about helping out, but more like getting something.
You might just enjoy to have prothon as another target,
and it will run on whatever implementation framework we build.
Java is quite likely, .net is possible.

PyPy-ers, I'd be interested to see Mark in our project, at
least on the list.
