[gratuitously] I agree with this...

but I think this is silly.  PyPy is an alternate implementation of Python, 
not a different language.  Stackless is a compiled extension, like many 
others, that works with the standard implementation or maybe still a minor 
modification thereof.

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.
