I feel like I am repeating myself so that's my last mail to this
thread.  There are no enhancements we are considering to benefit other
RPython users because *there* *are* *no* *other* *RPython* *users.*
There is only us and RPython suits us just fine for the purpose for
which it was designed.

Again, feel free to make a fork or a branch of PyPy and try to develop
a version of RPython that is more suited to writing general programs
in.  I don't know if there is a wish list of what is missing, but
certainly I haven't given it much thoughts myself.  Personally, I
think that writing RPython programs is kind of fun, but in a perverse
way -- if I could just write plain Python that was as fast or mostly
as fast, it would be perfect.

A bientôt,
