dear pypy developers,

congratulations on reaching the 1.0 release of py-py: the project
you are working on is very significant and is also a major achievement
that you should be proud of.

[today, py-py: tomorrow, the rest of the world ... :) ]

i was stunned and delighted to see the just-in-time compiler
capabilities and also the mention of "virtual machines".

i therefore wanted to make you aware of a project that you should
consider absorbing and adapting: a Python "Microkernel" Operating
System, called "cleese": http://www.jtauber.com/cleese

the developers of cleese managed a proof-of-concept back in 2003 and
would love to continue work on it.

the concept of an entirely python-esque environment, including a
development tool (e.g. http://leo.sf.net) right from the bare metal
up just... absolutely tickles me pink :)

and - i note on the documentation: the idea of using py-py for
embedded systems.  how much more "embedded" can you get if the entire
OS is cut and out-the-window!

good luck,
