How can you then still implement ceval.c in a recursive fashion,
since ceval is the "basis of everything" ???
In that sense, I'd like to discuss the "the Python interpreter
implementaton is harmful" issue.
But why should I bother. You have already reached more than you thought
to reach with your language, so why should I care about reaching you?
You probably wont even consider, so I don't even try, again.
