[pypy-dev] Question on the future of RPython

The current JIT generator creates a tracing jit, which gives very different
performance profile to static compilation. For tight loops etc this might be
ok, but might be different for the specific use case people are interested
in (I admit I still don't know what that is).

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...
