Thanks for posting this Armin. Let´s focus on the future then.

Maybe we should be clear in our documentation somewhere on
where we stand regarding RPython and maybe give some friendly
advice on how to get started with experimenting (because that is
what it means trying out RPython for other purposes than what Pypy
uses it for). And if more questions like these pop up we can refer the
inquiries there?

That way it´s the core dev team who expresses the views, in one voice
so to say.

Just a suggestion.
