Beware; I think you're close to getting guilty of pre-announcing vaporware. :-)

Are you sure? Where do you read this? The way I see it, you can't make
something available using the Python license (and for good reason,
it's a crappy license even though it's OSI-approved and
GPL-compatible), but there's no reason you can't release patches to
Python under the Apache 2 license -- after all the PSF suggests that
license for all contributions *to* Python as well.

Sounds hardly the place for a variant of the language.
