I read somewhere that PyPy is no more a project dedicated to Python, but it's 
a little bit more generic. If the project is splitted in two parts (generic 
compiler + python interpreter), Ouroboros would be the logo of the python 
interpreter, right?

I like Ourouboros. "snake biting its tail" was the title of my first news on 
linuxfr (a french open source news website) :-)
