I agree completely.  Using JPython/Jython we've developed (and released :-)
) a family of very sophisticated B2B applications -- comprising several
hundred-thousands of lines of code -- that are in deployment at a number of
very large companies with hundreds (ramping up to thousands) of end-users
each.  The UIs had to be built using the Java/Swing libraries; and Jython
made it a breeze.  Building Swing UI's using Jython is *much* better than
doing it in Java!
