Hi Todd,
I'm not sure what your goals are, but my position is that if you write a
translator backend and a JIT backend (please do) you can have fast (and
improving) python on platform X.  What were you hoping to target with your

 Sorry if this has been asked before.  I did some searching of the archive
and didn’t see anything but I might have missed it.

I am curious what percentage of real-world Python programs in use are also
RPython programs.  I know that the FAQ says that the translator is not
intended for Python programs in general but only for the PyPy interpreter
itself but I’ve also seen a few mentions (on other sites) of attempting to
translate Python to C.  I’ve been thinking about adding a backend to the
translator but would only want to do so if a significant amount of Python
programs could use it.
