I agree with Alex.  As I've posted here before, we have written hundreds of
thousands of lines of deployed/production Jython code.  We have converted
*a few* tiny display renderers (Swing-based) to Java to increase scrolling
performance.  But isolated, performance areas aside we have not found *any*
(zero) Java functionality that is not fully (and easily) accessible from
Jython. (But being so much more of a pleasure to code in Jython, of course.
Throwing in an unsolicited plug: we especially love all the *dynamic* stuff
that Python brings to Java via Jython. :-)
