but I think this is silly. PyPy is an alternate implementation of Python,
not a different language. Stackless is a compiled extension, like many

This I again agree with. I understand that Prothon is also a *different*
though Python inspired language. Also that it is still under development.
I have no idea of which has diverged more or whether they have mostly gone
in the same or different directions (a possibly interesting topic for a
post). But neither are as 'Python related' as Python itself.
