Couple-o-things

1) Isn't there another Python Server Pages project out there, one
   that uses JPython?

2) Is this a pure interpreter, or are the pages turned into byte-compiled
   python .pyc files?

3) Any reason not to switch to the JSP <> based tag format?  People, and
   more importantly web-page editors, are used to looking at <> based tags.

Keep up the good work!
