Terrible. If you have a memory-intensive application, use ASM (perhaps
C), not Python (or any other high-level language for that matter.)

This probably won't work at all as expected. If you wanted to get
Python processes to run on the cells, you'd probably need a special
interpreter written with that in mind. My memory of how the cell
technology works is that there is really a tiny amount of memory in
each cell and you need to think at a fundamentally low level to get
anything useful done.
I'm extremely interested in what you discover, and I'm sure others are
well. I'd love to be proven wrong in my assumptions. So keep us posted
when you find something interesting or useful.
