I think you are disregarding what 8 years of the PyPy project should
have made obvious.  Yes, some code will not run at all on PyPy at
first, and that amount of code is going to be reduced over time.  But
what we want is to avoid a community split, so we are never, ever,
going to add and advertise PyPy-only ways to write programs.

A bientôt,
