Repetition of work in Jython

Hi all,

So from what I understand, Jython translates Python code into JVM byte code.
Does anyone know why this was chosen instead of translating Python bytecode
to JVM bytecode directly? It seems that it would be a lot easier to get
Jython up-to-speed if there could be some "shared components" between them
and CPython, no?
