Given that we are not running PyPy's test suite on PyPy nightly 
currently, I think it would be safer to keep running the tests on top of 
CPython. Running the tests needs ctypes, and I don't quite trust PyPy's 
implementation of that yet (there are even known bugs that have not been 
fixed on trunk but only on a branch).

You should still be able to use pypy-c-jit for translation, because for 
translation (and after translation) you won't need ctypes that much.
