Of course it makes sense :) They might be interested in our translation 
toolchain as something providing relatively high-level abstraction (gc, 
python-alike) which we can tailor to whatever. It's also quite designed 
for implementing interpreters, disregarding whether it's python or not. 
On the other hand, having full python might be quite heavy.
