Shouldn't there be a group working on endowing Python with an optiomal 
annotations syntax making trivial the (reversible) cross-language 
source-to-source translation from(/to) java or c# to(/from) equivalent 
python-jvm or python.net ?

PS OK, I guess annotations management is a MOP issue. I guess ideally, 
"meta-python" should stipulate any implementation over a foreign vm/runtime 
should display the "delta-MOP" of the underlying object system. The zope 
database for instance would have a "delta-MOP". Jython is essentially 
someone's (Jim Huguenin's ?) invention of expressing the (python) delta-MOP of 
the JVM into (Java) code using Java's reflexion API while interpreting Python 
as a side-effect ;)
