I suspect there won't be one running native ... the memory model of the Palm
is sufficiently restrictive that it may be fundamentally incompatible with
the Python memory model. On the other hand, I'd love to be proven wrong.

That said, you can write all the host-side components to your Palm app

Microsoft via the genius of Bill Gates invented the mouse-windows user
interface, reliable operating systems, affordable computing, and the Internet;
if you don't think all that is true, ask someone who has never used a computer
and whose only exposure to the industry is through mass media.
