What I referred to was that the reason IronPython got so much
interest in this group is not because it is a *python-like*
language on the CLI but because it aims to be *python* on
the CLI. Big difference IMO.
If you'd make your language a valid python implementation, that could
also access .NET components (a la python) it would
instantly become a bazillion times more popular and talked about.
A "hey, it looks like python but it is not really python"
approach has little chance of capturing a python programmer's
imagination. It just muddies the water and sows confusion among
this is just an opinion, and I've been wrong many times before...
