I think right now Python/ceval.c is your only choice.  I recently began
working on something, but really have nothing more than a crude outline.  If
you start looking at ceval.c and get stuck, drop me a note.  I'd be happy to
try and explain things.  It might motivate me to work on pyvm.tex a bit more
as well.
