The other project you might want to take a look at is pippy:
http://pippy.sourceforge.net/. It's python 1.5.2 running on
PalmOS. The memory size is quite a bit less constrained that
the DePython project, but there might be some useful info.

At one point I was interested in doing something similar:
running Python on an ARM7 w/o virtual memory under eCos in
something on the order of 1MB. After looking at the DePython
and Pippy sites, I decided it was going to require more work
than I could justify.
