Python VM on Lego Mindstorms

Hello all,

Has there been any work on porting the Python VM to
run on a Lego Mindstorms RCX brick? So that robot
control programs can be written in Python.

I've heard of Pippy and Deeply Embedded Python, but
it will probably take a really stripped-down Python
to fit in the 32KB of RAM on the Mindstorms RCX (and
probably running on top of legOS). But peopele have
squeezed a JVM (tinyvm.sourceforge.net) into the RCX,
so this should be doable.

Could be an interesting, if somewhat perverted, little
project ...

Manoj
