I wonder if TinyPy (http://www.tinypy.org/) could be used to write a 
boot loader. It would probably need some more code to replace the 
services it uses from an OS, and perhaps it would need to work in 16bit 
program mode on x86 - but maybe it's doable?

tinypy is a minimalist implementation of python in 64k of code

by definition, not smart enough to debug it." - Brian W. Kernighan
