I think that the idea of subset is realy good. In fact we need a low
level language realy easy to interface with python code and that
mimicate the cool stuffs of python syntax.

I don't think that source compatibility between the two languages is
really important (but that could be cool).

This is probably less painfull than build a compiler for Python.
