In that case ...

- I have various versions of PyPy installed (regularly pull the latest
working Windows build);

- I use it occasionally, but most of my Python work ATM is Google App
Engine-based, and the GAE SDK doesn't work with PyPy;

- I'm not a PyPy contributor, but am also a believer - I definitely think
that PyPy is the future and should be the base for Python4K.

- I won't be at PyCon.
