This may be old news (sorry!), but there was a cryptic comment on NTK
("What with ESR's religious-war-by-the-backdoor plans to make  Kernel
configuration dependent on Python...") that caught my eye.  Turns out
that kernel config will be done in a new language (CML2) whose
interpreter is written in Python.

More info at (which I reached via
the Linux Weekly News kernel page


PS I searched deja but could find no previous ref to this...
