Said more diplomatically: you can do whatever you want with RPython,
but it was intended to be used to write interpreters for dynamic
languages like Python or Prolog or experimental ones like Converge.
Even so, I would recommend to first write at least the basics of the
interpreter in pure Python, keeping only a (at first) vague idea that
it should be RPython in the end.  RPython was developed with this
approach as a target.  That is why you may or may not get an answer to
your question on this mailing list.

Instead, just use regular Python, and complain here or on
https://bugs.pypy.org if the performance you get running on PyPy
doesn't match your expectations.

A bientôt,
