Speaking for Jython, so far it looks like something we would adopt
soonish after it was accepted (it looks pretty useful to me).

I'll add my voice to the group that likes "cpython" and "CPython" as
the identifier of the python.org implementation.  This version has a
long history, and "Classic Python" has a nice sound to it.  :) -- also
I hope (but won't hold my breath) that Python becomes more associated
with the abstract language in time.
