nice :) The logo could be dynamite inspired too :)

Although I think that the interpreter being named PyPy still makes  
reference for a python interpreter running on top of python, so maybe  
the interpreter could have another name and PyPy could be the name of  
the umbrella project for dynajite + all interpreters. But it is just  
an idea, feel free to not listen to me.

Being able to say that pypy is a python interpreter that is translated  
by dinajite is a big step forward in making things clear.

Another point is that I don't really think there is any need to  
separate the sources as antonio sugested,  separating things  
conceptually is enough.
