[pypy-dev] Leveraging PyPy to translate/compile into other scripting languages?

I have a need to translate Python code into source code in other scripting
languages - some open and others proprietary. The scope of the problem
space is very narrow... essentially the need is to define/lookup variables,
perform arithmetic operations, define/call functions, etc. but nothing
complex like regular expression handling or even opening a file. Some of
the target languages are dynamically typed and others are statically typed,
so some level of type awareness is needed (preferably through inference).
I currently have a partial implementation which uses the Python AST module
and some string templating to express the AST nodes in the other
languages. I am about to move on to building a symbol table capability and
tackle type inference. Before I head too far down this road, I keep
thinking back to PyPy and RPython and wondering if I could use portions of
this work to help me accomplish what I'm trying to do. Any comments?
