In general, the more interesting languages to try to implement with PyPy
are dynamic languages. Of course it's possible, and maybe even nice, to
write an interpreter for Pascal. It's just that there is a bias towards
dynamic languages, both in what RPython supports and in what the
translation toolchain can do with it.
Well, you can always try to build a dynamically extensible Pascal
environment with automatic memory management :-)
Which reminds me to mention that a Smalltalk environment would be a nice
project in PyPy.
