The latter is an aspect on which we _definitely_ plan to do much better
in the future, btw -- we have ambitious projects for dissemination of
information, enhanced documentation, easing the use of pypy for all sort
of teaching and research support.  But that doesn't resolve your issue
wrt the "suitable as part of academic work" (=="detached from real-world
usefulness"); we definitely DO plan to be real-world meaningful!-)
