This tool is completely broken. Primary reason is that this tool
operates on the level of source code, while RPython operates on live
python objects and that's a huge difference. That said, I don't think
there is any other way of finding what's RPython without compiling it.
In fact, RPython is defined as a thing that can be accepted by our
translation toolchain :-)

PS. Why you want to write RPython in the first place?
