Python for the Playstation 3

To All,

I was wondering if there is still a community effort to develop Python
for Linux distributions for the Sony Playstation 3??  I have found a few
WebPages stating this effort to port Python in such a way to take
advantage of the Cell architecture within the playstation?  However, all
of these WebPages are severely dated back as far as 2005-2006, with
absolutely no additional activity since that time.  I believe these
WebPages are now abandoned.  Is there any interest within the Python
development team to port the Python language to the cell processor??  If
not, I could try!!  Anyone else interested in developing the playstation
3 into a powerful supercomputer for the common individual???  I am also
interested in developing clusters of playstations for HPC by taking
advantage of Python's support for RPC and MPI!
