[pypy-dev] Question on the future of RPython

    If I were to go with my impressions, based on you being the lead developer 
of Cython, I could have claimed you have an ulterior motive on this thread.
But then I didn't because, inspite of first impressions/scepticism I believe we 
are all here with a genuine interest to improve the Python environment and get 
more visibiity and momentum on PyPy. Personally I cant wait to see PyPy become 
the default Python. :-)

Lets start with an understanding that we are all smart people with good ideas 
and lets also not get too cocky enough to think we have all the answers.

I saw some genuine synergies that I was calling out.

And I have heard some pragmatic arguments from others though no one has 
necessarily claimed logical impossibility on why this may not work.
And I can understand that.

That's just the impression that I get from what you write and how you write it.

Well, you are talking to people who know a lot more about what you are 
talking about than you do. It's normal that they are not equally 
enthusiastic about pie-in-the-sky ideas that someone throws at them.

I like the fact that you put marks of irony around the word "readability".
