Now that's a "Python will take over the world" statement if I ever heard
one. But seriously, processor manufacturers build processors and
compilers for Fortran, C, and C++. If a manufacturer starts paying
attention to where Python is going (for things other than scripting
their build-process), I'm sure Guido would like to know.
