IMO bringing the JVM backend to produce PyPy interpreters
would be a great goal!  Niko Matsakis brought it close already
with his Summer of PyPy work.  In case you haven't seen it
already: you may want to take a look into the "D12" report we
just published a few days ago - it talks about higher level
backends in particular: 


An additional goal (if it's otherwise to easy :) would be
to bridge into java libraries and objects.  Btw, if you
have particular feedback on the above report, let us now - 
we are going to finalize it next week. 

best & cheers,
