A random rag-bag of thoughts:
1) I have a rather cleaner, though currently less complete
application-level implementation of the string formatting goo.
It's split amongst a couple of classes, quite a few functions and
some global data. I'm not sure how this should be tied into the
stdobjspace. It would probably be better if they lived in a
separate module. We don't have a gateway.import_from_app_module
hiding somewhere, or do we?
2) We could do with more 'applicationy' goals compared to the rather
'lanugagey' ones like running pypy or running utest.
3) could 'non-reimplementations' like longobject.py be auto generated?
On the fly, even? It would seem a better solution than
cpythonobject.py (I guess longobject is special because of the
interaction with ints, but for e.g. files it shouldn't be too
