[pypy-dev] Question on the future of RPython

i just had a (probably) silly idea. :)

if some people like rpython so much, how about writing a rpython
interpreter in rpython? wouldn't it be much easier for the jit to
optimize rpython code? couldn't jitted rpython code theoretically be
as fast as a program that got compiled to c from rpython?

hm... but i wonder if this would make sense at all. maybe if you ran
rpython code with pypy-c-jit, it already could be jitted as well as
with a special rpython interpreter? ...if there were a special rpython
interpreter, would the current jit generator have to be changed to
take advantage of the more simple language?

just curious...
