The virtual machine underlying the Perl 6 language, Parrot
(www.parrotcode.org) will also support running Python. This will
probably incur performance benefits as well as allowing some interesting
interoperability between Perl 6 and Python-on-Parrot.
Whether Python-on-Parrot will become the official Python: I don't know.
