PyON is just that-born. The PyON concept and it's implementation is at
an early stage.
Therefore, it too early offer python-dev.
Personally I don't consider PyON as another serialization language. I
would like to see it as literal object notation based on python
syntax. Currently, this is not possible, because it is necessary to
expand the syntax of the python language. I don't expect this soon.
At this stage PyON uses the existing syntax of python language for the
human readable/writeble literal representation of objects.
I hope that one day someone will propose to expand the syntax of the
language and introduce literal notation for objects representation
embedded into python language.
